How do I report a restaurant sous chef that I think has Tuberculosis and stay incognito?
This person is white as a ghost, takes constant baths (I can hear through the apartment walls very easily), gets out of the bathtub often to cough, gag and spit stuff out. I know he spits stuff out because I then hear the toilet flush. This is not a cold because he has lived there one year. His girl friend says he has gastritis. I have Googled symptoms for TB and Gastritis. Only TB qualifies. His coughing, gagging, spitting and sometimes vomiting tells me something else is going on. He is a sous chef at a Cuban restaurant. I fear he is contaminating restaurant workers and customers, as well as the apartment he lives in. I would like to hear from someone who is savvy about pulmonary and/or infectious diseases. The management here doesn't care about anything, so telling them is out of the question. I don't want to get in trouble for reporting someone in error and cause them to lose their job or possibly file a lawsuit against me. Will the health department keep my name private?

Maybe he smokes? You can always report anonymously to the the county health department, but just because someone h***s up gunk doesn't mean they have TB.

why don't you nosey people just stay out of other people's lifes. How would you like someone poking his nose in your business? That's the trouble with the people in this world, they think they are the policeman of the world. Mind your own business
