Boston Latin Student Diagnosed With Tuberculosis

BOSTON (CBS) – A student at Boston Latin School has been diagnosed with tuberculosis.

The headmaster says the student is being treated and will not return until the infection is gone.

The Boston Public Health Commission has identified a small group of teachers and classmates who had prolonged contact with the student and could be infected.

They will be tested next week, but the school believes only one student is sick.
