Medical Update

There are four confirmed active cases of tuberculosis (TB) in the Sheboygan Area School District. One student attends Horace Mann Middle School and three students attend South High School. All students are within the same family structure. The students have been excluded from school and will remain in isolation until no longer infectious.

Students identified as being in close contact with the ill students will be contacted by the Division of Public Health and will receive free testing.

During the preliminary round of TB testing at South High School last month, no spread was identified outside of the family.
