About 300 students and staff from Kalamazoo Central High School can expect to undergo a skin test for tuberculosis next week. That’s because they might have been exposed to the disease by a student from Central who, Kalamazoo Public Schools confirmed today, has a case of active TB.

KPS learned about the case last Friday from a hospital treating the student, says Kalamazoo County Public Health Department Director  Linda Vail.
