Meningitis May be Returning to Sacramento

Another Sacramento-area student has come down

with an illness that health officials think may be
meningitis.

Parents of students at the Orangevale school have been contacted and told that county health officials suggest students who came into
contact with the student get antibiotics from their family

doctor. Several county children have come down with the illness this year, including two at
Folsom High School who died from meningococcal disease, which is caused by the same bacteria as

meningitis.
