Crook County Health officials say there is another confirmed case of meningococcal disease there. This is the County’s sixth such case in the last 11 months. Public Health Director Muriel Delavergne-Brown says the victim this time is a local teenager. An article in the Bulletin says he, and the infant stricken a few days earlier, are both listed in fair condition. Prior to this year, the County had reported just two cases of the disease in the last 10 years. Officials have not yet determined whether this pattern of cases constitutes an outbreak. They do say that vaccination can prevent the disease.
