December 2, 2022—Today, the City of Saint Paul received a notification from the State of Alaska Department of Health that a member of our community has been diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB). Alaska Public Health Nursing is contacting people who were potentially exposed to evaluate and test them for TB. If you are not contacted by Alaska Public Health Nurses, you likely did not have a significant exposure and do not need to be tested because of this identified case.
