Orange Student Diagnosed With TB


(Orange)- A student at Orange County High School was diagnosed with tuberculosis last week, and health department officials have been working to determine who else might have been exposed to the bacterial infection that affects the lungs. Health officials say unless there’s direct, face-to-face contact, it takes quite a bit of exposure — as long as 120 hours — for one person to pass it along to another. There will be an informational session at the school at 6 tonight.
