A student from the University of Lethbridge is identified as the Greyhound bus passenger with TB who travelled between Alberta and B.C. last week.
Officials at the university say that the student is receiving treatment for Tuberculosis and is recovering.
The student supervised an exam near the end of the term and was in limited contact with about 75 other students on campus.
The student took a bus from Lethbridge to Kelowna with a stop in Calgary and may have infected other passengers on the bus.
Public health officials have advised the student's roommates and anyone else that may have had contact with the student.
