IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – An Irving high school student has been diagnosed and is being treated for tuberculosis, according to the Dallas County Department of Health and Human Services.

Irving ISD confirms that the student attends Nimitz High School and free testing is being offered for students and staff that may have come in contact with the student during the spring semester of 2012-2013.

DCHHS is offering the free testing at Nimitz on Wednesday, September 18.

Due to health privacy laws, the district cannot identify the student.  However, letters and phone calls have gone out to Nimitz parents, and the principal has met face to face with staff and parents to talk about the free testing.  The district’s website has also posted information.

Parents with additional questions are urged ton contact Nimitz High School, their family doctor or DCHHS.

According to the DCHHS, a person infected with TB disease must be exposed to others for several hours in an enclosed environment for several days for the disease to spread.  Both TB infection and TB disease are treatable and curable.
