Cardinal Dolan to give Mass at jail despite TB scare

A holiday Mass behind bars will go on as scheduled this Monday, despite a tuberculosis scare at the Westchester County Jail.



A 45-year-old inmate tested positive for the highly infectious virus this weekend.



He is now being treated at Westchester Medical Center as the Department of Health tries to figure out if any other inmates or staff were exposed.



Despite the scare, Cardinal Timothy Dolan is scheduled to lead a Mass Monday morning.
