OXFORD, MS (WMC) - The Mississippi Department of Health is investigating a second tuberculosis exposure on a college campus.

Northwest Mississippi Community College says less than 50 students at their Oxford campus may have made contact last spring with someone who tested positive.

Everyone who may have been exposed is set to be tested.

In April, the health department confirmed a positive case at Ole Miss.

Since then, 200 students and staff there have been tested.
