Officials still are not saying if a student, teacher or school employee at Elon Elementary has an active case of tuberculosis.
They are urging you to get tested if you believe you've been exposed. But the testing is not always accurate.
[ANCHOR=Joy 2 shot]


Health Check Reporter Joy Sutton joins us with more on what the testing involves.
[ANCHOR=Joy 2 shot]


Shannon, One of the ways to detect TB is through a skin test.
[ANCHOR=JOY FULL]
[SUPER=@JOY1;]
[GRAPHIC=None]


But even if the skin test turns up negative --that doesn't mean a person isn't infected with T-B.
It can take 10 to 12 weeks after infection to show up.
To complicate things even further --if you have a positive test -- you could have TB infection --but not the disease --there's a big difference.

Those people may never develop active TB.
