Tuberculosis does not spread easily and usually requires close personal contact over a long period of time with an infectious person before it can be passed on. 

Please be aware that you cannot pass on TB to anyone else unless you have symptoms of TB. These symptoms can include one or more of the following; profuse sweating, rapid weight loss, a productive cough (lasting longer than three weeks in duration and for which there is no other possible explanation) and/or coughing up blood. Should you develop any of these symptoms in either the next few months/years or much later in life then you should seek medical assessment from your GP.
