US : San Diego County student tests positive for TB

Via Mercury News :

" Health officials say a San Diego County high schooler had tuberculosis and may have infected others.

City News Service says free TB tests will be offered Tuesday to students, faculty and staff at Bonita Vista High School in Chula Vista.

The county says a Bonita Vista student tested positive for TB and could have exposed other students between June 1 and Sept. 9.

Authorities say TB symptoms can include a persistent cough, night sweats and weight loss but most people exposed to it don't get the disease, which is curable."
