All 1,800 students and staff at a southern California high school will be screened for tuberculosis Friday after 45 students tested positive for possible exposure, authorities said.
The Riverside County Department of Public Health and state officials have determined there is a possibility of exposure to other Indio High School students, though “the risk of transmission appears to be moderately low,” according to a letter to parents on the school’s website.
Students will have to return to school in Indio, California, on Monday to have the test results evaluated, the letter says. Without verification of a current TB testing and results, students won’t be allowed to return to school after the holiday break, on January 6, the school said.
