KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kennesaw State University says it has scheduled free tuberculosis testing after learning a person at the school had tested positive for the illness.

The university says in a statement on its website that it is taking every precaution recommended by the state’s tuberculosis guidelines even though the risk of exposure and infection to the general campus population is low.

Kennesaw State’s WellStar Student Health Services will work with the Cobb County Board of Health to provide the Tuberculin Skin Tests (TST) in the University’s Social Sciences Building. The tests will be administered Tuesday, and health officials will come back Thursday to check the results.

The whole campus community has been notified, and separate notifications were sent to those who had frequent contact with the infected person.
