T.B. Outbreak Linked To CA Casinos, Time To Explore Online Options

Contra Costa Health (C.C.H.), an integrated health system for Contra Costa County in the Bay Area of San Francisco, suggested that anyone who spent time in the local casino get tested for Tuberculosis (T.B.).

A county health spokesman told news sources that out of 11 confirmed T.B. cases, 10 of them are directly linked to the California Grand Casino via players and staff. However, the source of the transmission has yet to be discovered. 

Dr. Meera Sreenivasan said that the C.C.H. is making this recommendation because there is new evidence that T.B. may have spread among people who spent time at the casino from 2018-2023. Dr. Sreenivasan said that T.B. can live inside the human body for years before showing signs of its presence. 

The California Grand Casino released a statement saying that they are working with health officials and that none of the confirmed cases are currently contagious or involve any of their current staff members.
