Letters have been sent home to the parents of Tokay High School students after a student was diagnosed with active tuberculosis, according to San Joaquin County Public Health officials.
Public health officials confirmed the diagnosis, and said that the student is being treated and that there is no longer a risk of exposure to students and staff at school.
“Public Health Services is working closely with school officials to proactively investigate and test students who may have been exposed,” Dr. Julie Vaishampayan, assistant public health officer, said in a statement.
Informative letters have been sent to the parents of all students.
Health officials will only be testing students and school staff who shared a classroom with the diagnosed student.
Public Health has scheduled a time to provide screening tests at school to those students and staff to detect inactive TB infection.
