A student from Sunnyside High School in Southeast Fresno is fighting a case of bacterial meningitis.


"Sunnyside has been notified by the Fresno County Department of Public Health that one of our students has been diagnosed with meningococcal disease. While this can be upsetting, the chance of your child also becoming ill with this disease is very small. Public health and Fresno Unified officials are working together to protect the health and safety of all students. The following links will provide you with a document that will help you understand the situation."

Dear Parent or Guardian,

We have been notified by the Fresno County Department of Public Health that one of our students has been diagnosed with meningococcal disease. While this can be upsetting, the chance of your child also becoming ill with this disease is very small. Public health and Fresno Unified officials are working together to protect the health and safety of all students. The following information will help you understand the situation.

 Meningococcal disease is an infection caused by bacteria. The disease is spread by prolonged, close contact with someone who has the illness. Examples of close contact would be kissing, or sharing cups, bottles, or eating utensils with the ill person, or coming in contact with coughs or sneezes of the ill person. Being in the room with the ill person is not considered close contact.

 Even after exposure to the bacteria, it is very unusual to get infected with the illness. It takes 2-10 days before symptoms appear.

 Taking antibiotics can prevent meningococcal disease from developing in persons who are identified as close contacts.

 When a person becomes ill with meningococcal disease, the symptoms may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, neck stiffness, and a rash. These symptoms need immediate medical attention because the disease can progress rapidly. Early treatment with antibiotics is important.

 As a general rule, you can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases by washing hands frequently, covering nose and mouth with tissues when coughing or sneezing, and not sharing eating utensils, toothbrushes, cups, drinking glasses, or water bottles.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact your family doctor or the Fresno County Department of Public Health at 600-3332. Please do not call the school for an update on the student’s condition. School administrators will work closely with public health officials to keep you informed of the situation.

Sincerely,
