At this time the Agency for Health Care Administration does not have statutory authority to screen students unless they are interning in a mental health facility licensed under chapter 395, where the primary purpose is not the treatment of minors, and they are not under direct supervision in the actual physical presence of a licensed health care professional.

Children under Age 18 - The law does not change based on the age of the employee/contractor. If a child under 18 years of age meets the definition of one of the positions above he/she must undergo the same screening as a person over age 18.
