Student at Hennepin Technical College diagnosed with tuberculosis
A student enrolled at Hennepin Technical College has been diagnosed with tuberculosis, school officials said Sunday, according to WCCO.
According to WCCO, a letter that was mailed out to students and staff by the school’s Brooklyn Park campus said that a student enrolled at that campus had been infected with an "active, infectious, pulmonary Tuberculosis disease."
Health officials are looking at students and faculty at the campus that may have been exposed to the disease, according to the Associated Press.
According to WCCO, school administrators were working to make a list of anyone who may have come in contact with person diagnosed with the disease.
TB, according to the Mayo Clinic, is a life-threatening infection that primarily affects your lungs.
The student has since withdrawn from the college.
