(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.
