Plan of Correction: TB tests will be updated for staff #1 and staff #2.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B
Description: Based on observation the playground area did not have adequate pea gravel under the swings. Evidence: On 7/25/17, the pea gravel under the swings measured around one inch and some dirt was showing.
