Health Department Not Expanding TB Investigation at Roanoke High School

Posted:

Roanoke, VA - The Health Department says they will not be expanding their contact investigation at William Fleming High School, where there was one confirmed case of tuberculosis.

That's based off results of their initial investigation. Since the one student was diagnosed, there have been no other additional active cases identified.

The next step for health officials is to repeat skin tests for those who tested negative the first time around to confirm the individuals do not have TB. That will happen early next year.
