Kentucky: Murray State Student May Have Tuberculosis

May 27, 2003

The Purchase District, Ky., Health Department has sent letters out to people who came in contact with a Murray State University student being treated for possible TB, an official said. Approximately 150 to 180 letters have been sent asking people to go to their local health department for an examination and skin tests within a week to determine whether they are infected, said Sharon Godec, nursing director at the department in Paducah. Godec added that there has not been a case of TB reported in Calloway County since 1996. The student is being treated as if he has TB and will remain under medical supervision until test results confirm the diagnosis in six to eight weeks, Godec said.
