BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — It’s confirmed.  There has been a case of tuberculosis at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.

UMBC officials learned of the possible case weeks ago and moved to quickly isolate the person, who is now getting treatment.

Health officials stress that the respiratory disease is very difficult to contract through typical campus life, and requires prolonged, sustained close contact with an infected individual.
