A tuberculosis scare has caused prison officials in Bowling Green to keep out visitors. State Corrections Department spokesman Tim Kniest calls it a routine precaution after it was discovered 64 inmates and six staff have tested positive to exposure to TB. Those who have been exposed are being tested to see if their exposure has lead to an active case of the illness. Kniest says chest x-rays have so far discovered no one who has actually caught the disease.
