About 200-students in the Oologah-Talala school district are waiting for results for tuberculosis. This after the Rogers County Health Department confirmed one high school student has TB.

The students who were tested Monday had the closest contact with the affected student. Six students have already tested positive, but are showing no signs of the disease.

Health experts say anyone who tests positive can't spread TB to others and it's likely they'll never develop it.
