Maryland: Eleven of Thirteen at School Get All-Clear for TB

June 26, 2003

A dozen students and one staff member at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville, Md., tested positive for nonactive TB, of which 11 were notified by health officials that they were not infected with the disease. The other two have yet to undergo follow-up medical examinations, including chest X-rays. At least 80 students and staff at the school were given skin tests after a student was suspected of having active TB. Students who did not have "prolonged, close contact" with the student were not tested, but their parents were sent a letter from Montgomery County school officials outlining the medical issues.
