A second case of tuberculosis has been confirmed at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond.
The university says a student tested positive for tuberculosis during a routine screening.
VCU announced the second case in an email sent to faculty, staff and students.
The first case was reported last week.
Health officials determined the two cases aren't related.
The Virginia Department of Health believes the risk to the general VCU community is small.
