20 high school students near Houston treated for tuberculosis

Posted August 24

— Twenty students have tested positive for tuberculosis infection at a high school in Fort Bend County.

The conditions were discovered during mass TB testing at the Houston-area school. All 20 of the people at George Bush High School are being treated.

The students are still allowed on campus because they're not considered a health risk.

About a dozen at the school still need to be tested as the Fort Bend County Health and Human Services Department continue to investigate the outbreak.
