A student at North Point High School in Waldorf, Md., has been diagnosed with tuberculosis and is under medical care, according to the Charles County Department of Health.

The health department is working with the school system to identify anyone who should receive TB testing.

Classmates and teachers who had prolonged exposure to the student with TB will receive an exposure letter and a TB testing consent form early next week.

The health department said it will test those people at North Point on Tuesday.
