Nurses return to Troy High School with tuberculosis test results for students, staff

TROY (WXYZ) - Nurses from Oakland County Heath Department will return to Troy High School Wednesday to talk to students and staff about TB results.

They will also be on hand to conduct skin test to anyone not present during Monday's testing.

Monday the nurses tested about 250 students, teachers and bus drivers who may have had contact with a student who has been diagnosed with a case of TB.

We first reported the confirmed case last Friday.

The student who has TB has not been at school for a few weeks.

Tuberculosis is contagious through close person-to-person contact, so Health Department Officials told cchool officials extra cleaning was not needed because the organism would not live on surfaces.
