32 test positive for TB at Montgomery high school

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The State Health Department confirms 32 people at Jeff Davis High School in Montgomery have tested positive for Tuberculosis. 

Results show that 26 students and six staff members returned positive skin tests. This does not mean they have an active case of TB, however.

Symptoms usually accompany an active case.

Health department officials did a symptoms screening on all the students and teachers and said they did not see any red flags. All 32 individuals also had a chest x-ray done.

Results from the x-rays will be available Friday.
