Possible case of Meningitis at Marquette Univ.

Posted:

Milwaukee (AP)--  A student at Marquette University has been hospitalized with a possible case of bacterial meningitis.

The school says Sunday that the student lives off-campus.

The student's roommates have already received preventative treatment, and the university is contacting others who may have had direct contact with the student.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says meningitis can be transmitted through respiratory or throat secretions, such as coughing or kissing. It is not passed through casual contact or breathing.
