Guidance on managing the public health consequences of TB in cattle and other animals.
This revised guidance provides greater clarity and uniformity to the approach taken by local public health authorities in England when assessing the risk to people who have been in close contact with Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis)-infected animals.
This guidance has been prepared by Public Health England (PHE) in consultation with Defra, Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA), the Food Standards Agency (FSA), Health and Safety Executive, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and the Department of Health.
