No risk of Tuberculosis in Kawhia community

Waikato DHB is aware that there are people in Kawhia that are worried they or their whanau may have been exposed to TB (tuberculosis). We want to reassure the Kawhia community that we have no information that indicates any current TB infection risk (in Kawhia or elsewhere). People in Kawhia do not need to do anything different than they normally do, or than people in other parts of NZ do.
