Abstract

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) responses such as social distancing practices can decrease health care access and tuberculosis (TB) notification, particularly among individuals aged 60 years or older. Conversely, they can increase TB notification among younger individuals. These results may be attributable to household transmission and the similarity of TB respiratory symptoms to COVID-19.
