The recent outbreak in tuberculosis cases have people who could have been exposed taking precautions. Some staff and students were tested this afternoon for the disease including Phoenix Elementary Principal Kevin Ohnstad. So far 10 cases of tuberculosis have been reported in the county and officials say it's expected more cases will be identified. Testing resumes tomorrow at Phoenix. Symptoms of TB include feeling sick of weak, weight loss, fever and night sweats, but it’s possible to be carrying the disease without presenting symptoms.
