25 students and faculty at Winship Elementary School in Grand Forks were tested this afternoon for Tuberculosis. Last week it was reported that a 10-year-old student at the school tested positive for the disease.

Health officials say the student did not contract TB from another student at the school, but they want to take preventative measures to make sure no other students have been exposed. Since October 16 cases have been reported in Grand Forks and six of those have been minors. Classic symptoms of the disease are coughing, night sweats and a fever. Results from those tested today will be released on Thursday.
