The only infection on that list that you would even screen an otherwise healthy appearing individual is HepB. The others I would think you only check if the patient has a presentation that makes you suspect them, like EBV if they had signs of mono, or RSV if they had respiratory symptoms. At that point, they're no longer screening tests, but more diagnostic ones.
