Our expert says:
Julie, TB is spread by coughing on people just like the flu. The best would be to have a PPD test done to determine your immune status. Actually, all direct contacts should have it done.
MDR (multi-drug resistant) TB is a strain of TB that is resistant to normal treatment and can be passed on as MDR TB. Good luck.
