TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) -- An update tonight on a story you saw First on Three last week. The department of corrections says all the test samples from inmates at Tabor Correctional are negative for tuberculosis.

Last week, the prision transferred one inmate to central prison in Raleigh after he became sick. Prison officials have ruled out T-B, but there is no word yet on the cause of the illness.

They will continue to monitor inmates that appear sick.

I'm a little surprised this made the news, because it's not an unheard of occurrence in DOC.
