RIVERSIDE, Ca. -- Santa Claus, a Jingle Bell Jam, boutique shopping and scores of dazzling holiday trees are expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors to the Riverside Convention Center this Friday through Sunday (Nov. 25-27).
Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser has determined that tuberculosis test results at Indio High School from about 100 students were within the normal levels health that officials expect to find in the general public. At this time, testing will not be expanded to other students or staff.
Riverside County has become the nation’s first large county to meet “functional zero,” a federal benchmark for making permanent housing available for all homeless veterans who seek assistance from the county.
A student at Indio High School has been diagnosed with active tuberculosis and Riverside County health officials are working with school representatives to identify students and staff who might have been exposed to the illness.
Facts and other information about the potentially fatal Ebola virus are available on a new web page from Riverside County health officials.
