AUGUSTA, Ga. -- An additional round of tuberculosis testing is planned for students and faculty at Butler High School.
Health officials are planning on going back to the school to do skin tests on everyone who tested negative previously to make sure they have not turned positive.
This is being done as a precaution. Officials say they have not uncovered any additional cases since they last reported that three people had tested positive.
Overall, 500 students and staff members have been tested.
There is no confirmed date for the testing, but officials say it will probably take place at the end of January.
