(Omaha, NE)  --   The Douglas County Health Department is investigating a series of tuberculosis cases.  Health officials learned last month that a person from out of state staying with family was diagnosed with tuberculosis.  Since that time, 14 people in Douglas County, including a child, have tested positive for the disease.  Officials say the cases are latent tuberculosis, which means the virus is dormant and not contagious.
