Barstow Community College is offering tuberculosis tests after a case of the disease was confirmed on campus.

The student who was diagnosed with TB is receiving medical treatment.

Health officials notified those who came into close contact with the sick student on Feb. 27.

Free skin tests were administered last Monday.

Because of privacy laws, neither the results nor the name of the infected student will be released.

BCC students are on spring break until March 18.
