Tuberculosis (TB) News
December 19, 2013
The Riverside County Department of Public Health in collaboration with the State of California, Indio High School, and Desert Sands District Administration has determined there has been a possible exposure of your Indio High Student with person(s) who have active tuberculosis. Although the risk of transmission appears to be moderately low it is by screening all Indio High School students that we can best support your child’s health and well being
There will be a mandatory TB screening on Friday December 20, 2013, at Indio High School for all enrolled Indio High School students. There will be no charge for this screening. Students will need to return on Monday, December 23, 2013, to Indio High School to have the results evaluated. If you choose not to participate for reasons of choice or convenience, your personal physician will need to administer and evaluate results. Without verification of a current TB testing and results, students may not return to classes on January 6, 2014.
If you have questions, please contact Indio High School at (760) 775-3550.
