    South Plains College notified of suspected tuberculosis case

    LEVELLAND – South Plains College has been notified by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) that an individual associated with the college’s Levelland campus has been diagnosed with a suspected case of tuberculosis.

    College officials have notified individuals who may be at potential risk of exposure. These individuals have been encouraged to get a free tuberculosis skin test that will be offered at a Screening Clinic per directions in the notification letter. If you have not been contacted, you do not need to be tested.

    “Tuberculosis is not transmitted easily from person to person and requires prolonged contact to spread,” said Chris Van Deusen, Assistant Press Officer for DSHS. “So, only people the health department has identified as having close contact with the sick individual need to be screened. DSHS has directly notified those people.”

    SPC is cooperating with the Texas Department of State Health Services and will follow the protocol outlined by that agency, according to Cathy Mitchell, vice president for Student Affairs. The majority of the college community is not at risk of contracting the disease, she added.

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a treatable disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air by an individual with an active TB disease, according to the Health Department.

    “About 90 percent of people who come into contact with TB bacteria never get sick because their bodies are strong enough to keep the germs from growing,” Van Deusen said.

     For more information, contact Dane Dewbre, associate dean of College Relations, at (806) 716-2210 or cell (806) 893-0644.
