Students and staff at Aurora School in the fall will be screened for TB



AURORA, Colorado – All students and staff who were at Aurora Hills High School during the fall semester will need to be screened for TB, health officials said Thursday.

Officials began investigating a potential exposure to TB at school in January.

Denver Public Health works with the Tri-County Health Department, Aurora Public Schools and College to test potentially exposed people during the fall semester.

January tests showed no infection. Repeated testing over the same people last week showed that some were infected, but none became ill, officials said.

Due to new findings, tests were expanded to include all students and staff who were in school at the fall session. The tests for the extended group will start on Monday.

No one has been diagnosed with tuberculosis and so there is no risk of exposure, said one official.
