IMPORTANT INFORMATION

NOTICE to students at Menzies College REGARDING MENINGOCOCCAL DISEASE

A student at Menzies College, Wyndham was admitted to Southland Hospital on 23 May 2016 with suspected meningococcal disease. There is no increased risk to staff and students at the College but everybody needs to be aware of the signs and symptoms of meningococcal disease.

Meningococcal disease is not easily transmitted from person to person.  Meningococcal disease is transmitted only by close personal contact that allows the bacteria to pass from the nose and throat of one person to another. 

People who have had these exposures during the 7 days before the case became unwell, may be considered ‘close contacts’ and prescribed a short course of antibiotics to reduce the risk of developing meningitis. We believe we have given advice and treatment to all the close contacts. However if you have further questions please contact Dr Naomi Gough Medical Officer of Health via the Dunedin hospital switchboard 4740999.
