  • Letter from School Nurse about Viral Meningitis

    November 6, 2015

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    The flu and virus season is now upon us. I am pleased to report that we have no confirmed reports of influenza in Piscataquis County. I have, however, received information from a parent today about a student with another common virus, Viral Meningitis. This is NOT the bacterial meningitis that is often debilitating, but is caused by various, common viruses. It is not a “reportable condition” such as Chicken Pox, Measles, etc. 

    I have spoken with the Centers for Disease Control this afternoon. Though it is not necessary to notify you of this virus, we felt, as a District, that we’d rather be the ones to inform you so that you have the correct information.

    As with other viruses, this is spread from person to person by coming in contact with bodily fluids such as saliva and mucus, and then transferring it to yourself by touching your eyes, mouth, nose, etc, or simply by breathing it in after someone has coughed or sneezed. 

    Having said this, the recommendations for prevention is the same as all other viruses:

    -stay home/keep your child home when sick

    -cover coughs and sneezes, followed by washing hands

    -avoid sharing water bottles, straws, etc.

    -wash hands often and keep hands away from your face

    Common symptoms of this virus (and many others) include high fever along with a severe headache, stiff neck, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting. Sensitivity to bright lights and confusion may also occur. 

    A fever, in and of itself, is nothing to panic over. If your child experiences a fever with any of the above symptoms, call your doctor. As always, please keep your child home until he/she is fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of Tylenol or Motrin).

    Again, this is a common virus, NOT bacterial meningitis. As with other viruses, there is no specific treatment and most people will recover on their own within 7-10 days. Please see your physician if experiencing any of the above symptoms and keep your child home.

    Thank you,

    Wendy Viera, RN
