KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — No new cases of tuberculosis have been reported at the Kalamazoo high school where a student who tested positively for the infection is enrolled.

As of Friday afternoon, tests results were back for 90 percent of the people at Kalamazoo Central High School who had to be tested, and most of them came back negative.

The few students whose tests came back positive for tuberculosis were carriers, but were not infected.

About 300 people had direct contact with the student, who tested positive for tuberculosis on Feb. 11.

Everyone will have to be tested again in May.
