Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Fourteen people from Coronado High School have tested positive for tuberculosis, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.

The victims contracted the disease from an exposure at the school in November 2013.

Health officials say those who tested positive had latent infections of TB, which means the victims are not contagious or experiencing illness from the disease.

The Health District will offer treatment to those who were infected.
