1 more child diagnosed with TB in Grand Forks

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Health officials in Grand Forks say another student has been diagnosed tuberculosis in Grand Forks.

The latest diagnosis is tied to an outbreak of tuberculosis in the area.

The student goes to Winship Elementary School. Children who were in close contact with the student are going to be tested Monday.

Officials say 16 people — 6 children and 10 adults— have been diagnosed with the potentially fatal lung infection.

Health officials have linked the outbreak to homeless visitors who exposed a family who gave them shelter.
