It was reported that preschool children attending Little Green House at Bukit Batok were screened for latent tuberculosis (TB) on Wednesday (Aug 24).
This comes after a teacher was diagnosed with the disease. The teacher had reported sick last Thursday. She was later diagnosed with TB.
On Saturday, parents were informed of the situation. The premises were fumigated and the toys and surfaces were sanitised.
The school is working closing with the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) TB Control unit. There are about 104 students and 20 staff members in the preschool.
Classes will continue as per normal.
