Two colleges, one in Connecticut, and one in Santa Barbara, CA, have experienced several cases of meningococcal disease, including meningitis. This is a very serious bacterial infection which is often life–threatening. For those who get infected, being started on treatment right away can be a life saver, and epidemics have been known to occur where people live together, such as college dorms.
Hopefully this infection will not make its way to HSU. Just in case, however, we advise all students, faculty and staff to be aware that sudden symptoms of very high fever, severe headache & stiff neck, unusual rash, and vomiting should prompt you to seek urgent medical attention. Do so even if you've had a meningitis vaccination in the past. Following the advice below can help you avoid meningococcal infection.
