Tuberculosis Case Verbally Confirmed
by Celia Shortt
District 4 Health Services based in LaGrange received verbal confirmation Friday that the suspected case of tuberculosis at Smokey Road Middle School in Coweta County has been confirmed.
The child was already being treated for TB as a precautionary measure. Just because this case has been confirmed it does not mean that 28 students, teachers and others who might have come in contact with the child and who tested positive for exposure to TB were all exposed to it through this person, according to Hayla Folden, spokesperson for District 4 Health.
