University of California Riverside is offering tuberculosis tests after a case of the disease was confirmed on campus.

The student who was diagnosed with TB is getting medical treatment.

Health officials said the risk of anyone else having picked up the disease is low, but it has notified people who spent a lot of time with the sick student, as well as people who shared spaces like lecture and dining halls.

Anyone who wants to get one of the free TB tests can go to the Campus Health Center.
