Oregon Public Health Officials continue monitoring for cases of meningococcal disease linked to a University of Oregon outbreak that began in mid-January. There have been no new cases linked to this outbreak since late May. Vaccine was offered to incoming students at the campus orientations throughout the summer and continues to be widely available in local pharmacies and in all of Oregon. University of Oregon, Lane County, and Oregon Health Authority are working together to prevent further infections.
People who had close contact with a person diagnosed with type B meningococcal disease related to this outbreak should contact Lane County Health Department at (541) 682-4041. A nurse will help decide if antibiotics are needed to prevent illness.

Springfield: Tests Negative for Neisseria Meningitidis
Earlier today, tests indicated that a case associated with Springfield Public Schools does not have Neisseria meningitidis. This “rule out” is part of the standard practice of Lane County Public Health and is a regular function of the County working with patients and medical providers to keep the community safe from communicable diseases.
At this time, Lane County Public Health is not concerned about elevated risk for students in the Springfield School District. Our team’s concern, first and foremost, is the health and safety of our community.
