ROANOKE, Va. (AP) -- Roanoke school officials say there have been no additional confirmed cases of tuberculosis at a school where one student was diagnosed with the illness.

A posting on the school system's website says a letter updating the situation at William Fleming High School will be sent home with students on Thursday.

Roanoke health officials identified 150 students and employees at the school who might have been exposed to tuberculosis. Media outlets report that all but two people have been tested.

Testing began Dec. 6 and is continuing.
