OLATHE, Kansas - 27 people at Olathe Northwest High School have confirmed cases of tuberculosis after one person was diagnosed with active TB earlier this month, according to Fox 4 kc.
Officials say those infected have no signs of disease at this point.
At least 300 students and staff have been tested so far.
Those infected cannot spread TB since they do not have any active symptoms like cough and fever. Anyone infected is able to get an x-ray, at no cost, which will determine if the disease is in their lungs.
Although the first infected student hasn't been to school since their diagnosis, officials say it can take 8-10 weeks for the bacteria to be present in tests.
