Virginia student band member diagnosed with meningitis

Band camp took a week long intermission when one of the participants was diagnosed with meningitis.

The type of meningitis was unknown until the test results came back. Bacterial meningitis can be deadly while viral meningitis is less serious.

Everything at band camp was properly cleaned after the scare.

It turned out that the participant has viral meningitis. Students have been reminded to wash their hands regularly and cover their mouths and noses when coughing and sneezing.
