    People with TB who have been treated with the correct drugs for at least 2 weeks are no longer contagious and do not spread the bacteria to others.

    TB is passed during an active infection by breathing along with coughs and sneezes. It can take a week or might take years for an infection to become apparent. It is possible to get immunised against TB and some countries do this routinely to children.

    TB is extremely contagious! You should wear a surgical mask when around them. Also use gloves when cleaning. But the concern should be more with the mask. TB is contagious through the terrible cough.
