Minnesota: St. Mary's University Determines TB Hasn't Spread

May 12, 2003

Following extensive testing for tuberculosis on its Winona, Minn., campus, St. Mary's University received a clean bill of health. One student, who was diagnosed with active TB on Jan. 31, was treated and found to no longer be able to transmit the disease. Thirty-two students in close contact with the infected student were tested twice; all the tests were negative, the university said. The university plans to continue its practice of screening new and returning students who live in, or have traveled in, areas of the world with high numbers of TB cases.
