MURRIETA ( — Vista Murrieta High School may have its second case of tuberculosis in less than six months.

Health officials say they’re working to determine which students and teachers might have been exposed.

The first illness was reported last October, but so far, officials say there’s no evidence the cases are related.

Anyone who could have been exposed will receive a notice from officials and is advised to get a TB test.

However, the incubation period following exposure is two to 10 weeks, so waiting at least two weeks before testing is recommended.

Parents can contact their health care provider or the Public Health Department Disease Control at (951)358-5107.
