Morgan County Student Has Viral Encephalitis

Morgan County R-II School District said what was suspected to be a case of meningitis turned out to be viral encephalitis.

The letter that was sent to parents yesterday [Tuesday] was a follow up to one that was sent last week, stating they were working with county health officials about the possible meningitis.

Officials said in the letter that the encephalitis case is isolated but encouraged parents to talk to students about good hygiene to stop the spread of illness.
