NEWNAN, Ga. -- About 150 students at Newnan High School in Coweta County will be tested for tuberculosis Friday.
The Georgia Department of Public Health sent letters to the parents of Newnan High students. The letter said one student is suspected of having TB, and an investigation identified others who need to be tested.
Not all students will be tested; only those who received a second letter will be asked to take the free skin test.
Tuberculosis is treatable and curable, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health.
