Moultrie- 1,500 patients, former patients, and employees at Colquitt Regional Hospital in Moultrie got letters telling them they may have come into contact with a hospital worker who has tuberculosis over the last six months.

The health department is administering skin tests at Willie Williams Middle School in Moultrie Friday, and next Monday and Tuesday from 7:30 AM to 6 PM.

If you think you may have been exposed and did not receive a letter, contact your local health department or call the public health hotline at 1-888-430-4590 or 1-800-430-4212. Officials will let you know if you should be tested.
