ENNIS (CBSDFW.COM) – The long tuberculosis scare in Ennis appears to be winding down.

Ennis High School students who were kept out of class because of an either suspect or active diagnosis of tuberculosis are now being told they can return to school on Monday.

KRLD’s Matt Thomas Reports:


The State Health Department says tests have determined none of the students are contageous.  The teacher who has TB and touched off the scare several weeks ago remains off campus.

Hundreds of students who tested negative will again be tested at the end of the semester to confirm they’re still clean. The health department will have a presence at Ennis High School for the rest of the school year.
