Video: Officials say Toledo postal worker might have tuberculosis

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -Toledo postal workers at the main post office downtown have been notified that a fellow postal employee may have tuberculosis.

One person emailed WTOL 11 Thursday morning unhappy with management and said: 

“They ‘were’ more concerned about covering for the person infected than the rest of the employees that may have been infected. I suppose it’s the law, but it still stinks to not know if you were close to this individual.”

The president for the local American Postal Workers Union (APWU), Arnie Cowell, says they were notified of a worker possibly having tuberculosis, but a definitive test result had not yet come out.

Cowell could not elaborate on the person, but said they do not have anything to do with direct contact with mail or the general public, therefore there’s no cause for concern.

“The facility is operating normally,”Cowell said.
