Former TCC Southeast Campus Student Tests Positive For TB

By Ryan Crowe,

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A former student testing positive for tuberculosis has 200 students, faculty and staff at Tarrant County College’s Southeast campus in Arlington facing the possibility of needing their own TB tests.

Tarrant County Public Health officials says the student, who left the school in February, is a Dallas resident.

The health department was notified of the student’s positive diagnosis Tuesday, leading them to notify the college of the need to screen students and staff who came into contact with the former student.

The health department will be on campus April 3 to speak with students and conduct tests. TCC and the health department will also send out letters Friday notifying the people who could have been exposed.

Anyone with questions can contact Tarrant County Public Health at (817) 321-4700 or the TCC Southeast campus at (817) 515-8223.
