    More than 100 teens at a Gaithersburg high school will be tested for tuberculosis after being exposed to a person at the school carrying the disease.

    According to the Montgomery County Health Department, 126 Watkins Mill High School students and staff need to be tested after they came in contact with a person with the disease last month.

    The department will conduct free blood tests at the school for students and staff March 25. Parents are also welcome to take their children elsewhere for testing at a sooner date.
