A doctor informed the Vigo County Health Department Monday afternoon, that a patient had symptoms of the disease.
That person has ties to Woodrow Wilson, on the east side of Terre Haute, but officials can't say if it's a student or teacher - just that he or she hasn't been at the school
since showing signs.
The case has not been confirmed to be TB.
The Health Department is not taking any chances. They'll be giving free TB tests to the 1,000 students and staff at Wilson next week.
"It's important to the School corporation and the Health Department to capture and test the students while they're still in the school corporation, so we're proactively administering the PPDs or TB tests," said Joni Foulkes of the Vigo County Health Department. "Want the parents to know - and the faculty and other staff - to know that we are proactively taking care of it."
Parents of Wilson students should have gotten an automated message today about the situation, and students will get a permission slip that must be signed in order to get the TB test.
Officials say there's no need to keep students home from school.
