The Onondaga County Health Department is preparing to test about 100 people at Fowler High School Friday who may have come into close contact with someone who has an active case of Tuberculosis. Officials say, however, there’s virtually no risk of exposure to the general public.
County health officials say the person has been ill for several weeks and often returned to school. The person was ultimately hospitalized with pneumonia, and diagnosed with TB. Health commissioner Dr. Indu Gupta says her office was informed, and they’ve launched their investigation.
