According to the CDC, viral meningitis is often less severe than bacterial meningitis and usually resolves without specific treatment. But it can be severe or fatal depending on the virus causing the infection, the person’s age, or whether a person has a weakened immune system.
The school was sanitized during the closure to help ensure the sickness does not spread.
