    (NECN) -  Harvard University has confirmed a case of tuberculosis on their campus.

    A member of the community tested positive for TB and the university is recommending that anyone who has come into contact with this person get tested.

    Harvard University Health Services confirms that TB is not highly contagious and therefore the risk for contracting it is low.

    However, if it is not treated, the disease can be deadly.
