TB tests show no concerns for Busch workers

ST. LOUIS (AP) - About 100 Busch Stadium employees have been given a clean bill of health after tuberculosis testing.

The testing was performed after one employee of the ballpark was found to have a noncontagious form of TB.

Interim St. Louis health director Pamela Rice Walker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that because it was considered an active case, the city was required to notify close-contact co-workers and offer testing.
