Guam - It's not an all clear for TB at the Department of Corrections just yet.

According to DepCor spokesperson Jeff Limo, three individuals will need further testing following their chest xrays.

As we've been reporting, a mass screening for TB at DepCor was prompted after a pre-trial detainee was confirmed to have active TB.

Although this would complete TB screenings at the Mangilao facility, Limo says it has yet to be decided if a mass screening of the Hagatna Lockup is necessary.
