While Hamilton’s Public Health Department says the risk is low, about 80 students and staff at St. Jean de Brebeuf Catholic High School on the mountain may have been exposed to tuberculosis.
The Public Health department says a case of active tuberculosis has been reported.
A statement issued by the department says most of those who may have been exposed have been notified and the remaining few are being tracked down.
It can’t release any personal information about the patient who has the disease due to privacy rules.
And the department is not releasing information about where else in the area this person may have been.
The statement also says there is no significant risk to the broader community.
