Minnesota: Some Saint Mary's Students to be Tested for Tuberculosis

February 6, 2003

Several students at Saint Mary's University in Winona, Minn., will be tested for tuberculosis after a student was diagnosed and treated for a potentially active case of the disease. University health services staff notified administrators about the student last Friday. Director of Health Services Angel Weisbrod said in a campus memo Tuesday, "we are responding quickly, thoroughly and with care for the individual." Weisbrod noted that Saint Mary's immediately contacted the Minnesota Department of Health and was advised of actions to take. The student was taken to a hospital for further testing. Although the state Health Department has not confirmed the diagnosis, people closest to the student were notified and will be tested.
