Shocker: Long Beach declares public health emergency as tuberculosis outbreak claims one life, implements outreach screening and treatment

Officials of Long Beach, California, have confirmed a tuberculosis outbreak concentrated within a single-room occupancy hotel. On Thursday, City Health Officer Dr. Anissa Davis responded to the crisis, swiftly declaring a local public health emergency. This measure, pending ratification by the Long Beach City Council, will mobilize resources necessary for effective containment and treatment.

Tuberculosis stems from bacteria typically targeting the lungs, spreading through airborne transmission when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. The situation has reportedly claimed one life and led to the hospitalization of nine others. In adherence to HIPAA regulations and to safeguard patient confidentiality, the hotel’s name will not be disclosed.

The outbreak, associated with 14 confirmed cases as of April 29 reports, has prompted the identification of an additional 170 individuals who may have been exposed. These individuals undergo screening processes, including chest X-rays, blood tests, and symptom reviews.

While details surrounding the outbreak remain a concern, including the inability to confirm the date of the first recorded case and the specific location of the affected hotel, efforts are underway to mitigate further spread. Public health authorities are working to contact individuals who may have been exposed, emphasizing the importance of seeking medical care for anyone who suspects they may be infected.

The outbreak comes amid a concerning trend of rising tuberculosis infections statewide, echoing a nationwide surge reported in 2023. Officials documented over 9,600 instances of tuberculosis in 2023, marking a 16% increase from 2022 and the highest figure recorded since 2013. While the risk to the general public is currently deemed low, vulnerable populations face significant challenges in accessing care and navigating barriers such as homelessness and housing insecurity.

As the City Council prepares to vote on the emergency declaration, neighboring jurisdictions stand ready to lend support, exemplifying the collaborative approach necessary to address public health crises effectively.
