Tuberculosis Testing Being Conducted At Glenn Hills High School

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Some students and faculty at Glenn Hills High School are being tested for Tuberculosis (TB).

The testing comes after health officials say a student at the school is suspected of having TB.

Richmond County Health Department staff have started testing close contacts of that student. Other students and staff can be tested for free on Tuesday, September 24th at the school, or at the Richmond County Health Department, on Laney Walker Boulevard.

Last year, nearly 600 people at Butler High School were tested for TB after a student showed signs of having the disease. Later, 3 people were confirmed to have TB.
