Marietta, GA - We'll have to wait a bit longer to find out results from last week's tuberculosis tests at Marietta High School.
Public health workers from Cobb and Douglas Counties said they would have the results early in the week, but they now say they won't make them public until Thursday.
About 500 members of the school took the test Friday. At least one parent told the Marietta Daily Journal a student tested positive from the TB skin test. But it does not mean that student actually has the infection.
Valerie Crow with Cobb and Douglas Public Health tells the Marietta Daily Journal that if a a skin test is positive then the person will need to take a blood test, and if that test is positive, then a chest x-ray would follow to check for active TB in the lungs.
One student originally tested positive, causing this round of tests.
Students say Friday's testing went very smoothly.
