Irving's Nimitz HS Students To Be Tested For TB

Lead in text: 
A confirmed case of tuberculosis in a student at Nimitz High School will bring Dallas County Health officials to campus next week to test for exposure to the illness.
About 100 students at Nimitz High School have been notified they could have been exposed to tuberculosis last spring. A student at Nimitz is currently being treated for TB. Officials are not releasing any more information about the patient. Next Wednesday, the Dallas County Health Department will do free TB testing on campus to screen for infection.
