STAFF OF PCF SPARKLETOTS IN CLEMENTI DIAGNOSED WITH TB, KIDS THERE TO BE SCREENED

This time, a staff of a PCF Sparkletots pre-school was diagnosed with active tuberculosis. The pre-school in Clementi was immediately informed when this case is confirmed, triggering a mass screening of staff and children who had been in close contact with the infected staff.

So far, 66 staff and students of the school located at Clementi Avenue 1 had been screened by the MOH , with 45 tested negative, and 21 more awaiting a doctor's evaluation.

Most of these kids are very young, and most of the parents are worried about the TB skin test and how that would affect their young children.
