YUP. Nothing like a good ole fashioned 1800’s disease that pops up in 2019 to terrify everyone.
A case of confirmed tuberculosis, which I thought was eliminated around the same time the Industrial Revolution started, was caught at
Charles H. Barrows STEM Academy.
School officials went on to say that “under the directions of the State Department of Public Health (DPH) and local health district authorities, Windham Public Schools has set a plan of action in place according to the timeline determined of DPH.”
A letter was sent home with students saying that there was a confirmed case. Call me crazy but I think a case of TUBERCULOSIS deserves a bit more than a letter. I know it’s an old disease but we live in the age of phones.
