TB Diagnosed At OM High

The principal at Oakland Mills sent out a letter today telling families that someone at the school has been diagnosed with tuberculosis and is under medical care.

Although health authorities believe the risk of transmission is unlikely, the county nevertheless has started an investigation to be sure no staff or students have been exposed to the bacterial illness. Some people are being asked to come in for further testing.

A meeting is being held at the school tonight (4/15) to discuss, or anyone concerned can call the health department at 410-313-7524.
