The Health Department in Cabell County is attempting to contact about 100 people after confirming two cases of tuberculosis.
 
Health department officials said the two infected patients may have been exposed to that group of 100, and that all of them will need to be tested. They will get court orders if they have any trouble.
 
Watch the video above to learn more about tuberculosis from a local doctor, as well as the risks and prevention behaviors you need to know about.
 
Tuberculosis (TB) is a potentially serious infectious disease that mainly affects your lungs. The bacteria that cause tuberculosis are spread from one person to another through tiny droplets released into the air via coughs and sneezes.  Click Here to read more from the Mayo Clinic.
