The Floyd County Health Department (FCHD) has passed the 100 patient mark in our response to a Tuberculosis (tb) outbreak in Southern Indiana.
To date 15 people have had positive skin tests in Floyd County.
The index case in the outbreak is a Clark County resident, however, the case was diagnosed at Floyd Memorial Hospital.
Currently, less than 20 individuals remain to be tested in at risk groups in Floyd County. There is no need to start testing the general population.
The PPD test involves injecting the patient's arm with a small quantity of reagent.
