AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --The Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention has confirmed that a person at Central Maine Community College has come down with a case of tuberculosis.

Scott Knapp, the president of CMCC, says he cannot confirm whether the person infected is a student or a faculty member. He does say that the person is recovering and has been released from the hospital.

Knapp says the about 3,300 students and faculty are on the campus, and the CDC has determined that 250 of those people will need to be tested.

A free clinic has been set-up to get those tests done by the CDC. It will be a week from Monday on campus. Those who need to be tested will be notified by mail.
