More than 200 Fresno City College students may have been exposed to tuberculosis and were advised to get tested, the college said.
Officials from the Fresno County Department of Public Health notified the community college last week that a student, who was enrolled in three classes, tested positive for TB, spokeswoman Kathy Bonilla said. Nurses from student health services went to two of the classes to inform students of the potential exposure to the disease and suggested they should get tested. The third class was an online-based class that sometimes met on campus, and they were notified to visit health services.
The students were given the option to get tested for free at Fresno City College, or through their doctor or to not get tested at all, Bonilla said.
