Well, that’s unfortunate with the timing of your new job. Hopefully this doesn’t interfere with your getting the position. However if you have latent TB it is good that it’s been detected early as it is treatable.
On the previous links I provided to the CDC, there is more on the topic of latent TB and the treatments available. I’m sure your physician will guide you through this if needed.
Hope this helps clarify things for you. ☺️
