DALLAS (KRLD) - Two students at W.T White high have been confirmed to have tuberculosis according to Dallas County Health officials.

Dallas County Health and Human Services will perform skin tests on a group of students who have been in direct contact with the brothers starting Wednesday.

The brothers have been undergoing treatment for the past two months and according to the DCHS director, parents "shouldn't be overly worried" since the two students have been in treatment.

Parents are being asked to look out for symptoms in their children which could include prolonged cough, fatigue and weight loss.
