This alert is to notify providers of an outbreak of isoniazid-resistant tuberculosis (TB) among Oaxacan persons in the northern region of Santa Barbara County. To date, nine active TB cases have been identified within this community; 5 of the cases have epidemiologic links and the same genetic pattern on their TB isolate, suggesting the same chain of TB transmission. All case-patients are residents of Santa Barbara County, aged 1-79 years old, and all are ethnically Oaxacan (persons from a region in Mexico who often speak Mixteco and do not speak Spanish.)
