The tuberculosis outbreak has now spread to 16 active cases, making it the largest TB epidemic ever in Grand Forks.

UND faculty, students and state health officials met this afternoon to discuss ways to stop the spread and properly educate the public. Officials from the public health department say they've tested about 900 people since the outbreak began a few months ago. They say there's no great concern to the general population, only to those in direct contact with active cases. The health department will continue to provide free testing for those contacted.
