Two Tulsa teachers test positive for tuberculosis

New developments concerning the tuberculosis scare at a Tulsa elementary school. Two Emerson Elementary teachers tested positive for the disease Monday.

This all started last week when an Emerson student tested positive for the disease. One teacher's positive test wasn't clear, so it'll be tested again. The second teacher shows no symptoms and might have been exposed to tuberculosis in the past. That teacher is on medication and having more tests. Both teachers are still working at Emerson.

The Tulsa City-County Health Department says the teachers don't pose a risk to Emerson students and other staff.
