A case of tuberculosis has been confirmed in the Calgary Zone by Alberta Health Services.

This week AHS sent notification letters to 81 people who may have been exposed to the disease.

The letters contain information on arrangements for TB assessment, screening, and treatment if required.

AHS says the exposures have been contained to one Calgary area school and are not a risk to the public as the risk of transmission is low.

AHS won't be releasing details on the name of the school where the exposure took place.
