Carol no need for panic. This is a common scenario. Firstly the ill employee needs respect and support. The colleagues need to have concise info and education sessions as to the signs and symptoms of TB. This is usually where it ends unless an employee recognises worrisome signs and symptoms in themselves. If so they must visit their doctor.

No need for workplace x-rays or similar mass screening.
