A rare case of tuberculosis (TB) in Auglaize County is being investigated by local health officials to prevent its spread.
A man working at a Wapakoneta business was found to have contracted the disease and tests are being conducted on his co-workers and close personal contacts, Auglaize County Health Commissioner Charlotte Parsons said.
She said earlier this week nurses tested 90 percent of the man’s co-workers.
“We have no results yet,” Parsons said. “All of his family contacts have been tested, also.”
Each polling location in the county is expected to have just one ballot box for the May primary.
Auglaize County Elections Board members discussed the option Wednesday during their regularly scheduled board meeting.
Auglaize County Elections Director Carolyn Campbell suggested they take one ballot box to each polling place except St. Marys.
