COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – Students and staff at Lely High School have all tested negative for Tuberculosis.

County health officials tell WINK News, 100 students and staff were tested for TB last week, after possibly being exposed to a student infected with TB.  That student has recovered.

The Health Department plans on testing students and staff again on February 24th, because Tuberculosis can lay dormant.
