May 29, 2002

The Tarrant County Public Health Department in Texas is offering to screen and treat about 150 Trinity High School students and faculty who may have been exposed to a student believed to have pulmonary tuberculosis. The 17-year-old female student had been showing symptoms of the disease for more than a month. Health officials are awaiting test results to determine the type of TB the student contracted. Letters to students and faculty considered at risk of exposure were mailed last week. The Health Department will conduct screenings May 31 at Trinity High School, Superintendent Gene Buinger said.
