Students at Edison Elementary Preschool in North Park will be tested next week after someone at the preschool was recently diagnosed with tuberculosis.
Students and staff may have been exposed to the disease from Jan. 24 to Feb. 9, 2011 according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA).
County staffers will be at the school Feb. 28 to test for early signs of infection.
"Once diagnosed, TB can be treated and cured with medication," said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County Public Health Officer in a news release.
Symptoms of active TB include persistent cough, fever, night sweats and unexplained weight loss.
Those who need more information may call the County TB Control Program at (619) 692-8621.
