El Paso Health Department Investigating Another Possible TB Exposure Incident
The El Paso Health Department was seen outside a halfway house in south-central El Paso this morning. Although no Health Department officials would confirm, a resident who lives at the Dismas Charities, Inc., says a person who also lives there is being tested for tuberculosis.
This is the second possible incident of TB exposure in El Paso in less than a month. Students and faculty at Frank Macias Elementary were tested for TB late last month. The results from those tests have not been released to the public. Health Department officials say they will hold a news conference about the TB tests at Frank Macias sometime Tuesday.
The Health Department says they will make a statement about this latest exposure possibility late Monday afternoon. We'll keep you posted on the details.
