Tuberculosis (TB) Control

 

Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. TB is spread through the air from one person to another when a person with TB disease coughs, sneezes, or speaks. Not everyone infected with TB bacteria becomes sick, but if not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal.

The Berrien County Health Department provides evaluation of an individual’s TB status as well as treatment and follow-up of exposed individuals and active cases. For employers with groups of 10 or more, TB testing can be done at your workplace. Call the TB Control Nurse for more information at 269-927-5636.
