Tuberculosis (TB) Investigation Information
Posted at 1:45 p.m.
The Health Department, in cooperation with Fairfax County Public Schools, initiated a broad tuberculosis (TB) investigation at Robert E. Lee High School to identify people who may have had contact with three individuals at the school who have been diagnosed with active TB disease.
Members of the general public do not need to take action. Only those Robert E. Lee High School families that received a letter from the Health Department need to attend the special clinics at the school. If you did not receive a letter from the Health Department asking that you be tested, you do not need to come to the school.
Robert E. Lee High School Families
Although the Health Department’s June 17 letter stated that you should call the Springfield District Office to make an appointment for testing, the testing location changed. Instead, a special clinic was set up for Robert E. Lee High School families who received a letter from the Health Department asking that they be tested for TB. Families who received a letter from the Health Department should call 703-267-3511, TTY 711 to make an appointment. Families who have questions about the investigation or TB may also call for information.
