If you believe you may have Tuberculosis, or if you have the above symptoms, please contact us via the details below.

• TB germs spread when a person with infectious TB disease coughs, speaks,

or sings.

• TB germs usually attack the lungs but can also move to any part of the body.

TB germs can live in the body without making you sick.

This is called latent TB infection or inactive TB.

• TB germs can live in your body for years without causing symptoms. Without

treatment, inactive TB can develop into active TB disease and make you sick.

• If you have inactive TB, you can take TB medicine to prevent the development

of active TB disease even if you do not feel sick.
