Health officials says the recent case of meningitis in Deschutes County, is not connected to the Prineville cases. A five year old girl contracted meningitis recently and was hospitalized in Portland. The Oregon Public Health Lab says the girl's strain is different from the Prineville cases, which means there is no link to the Crook County outbreak. About 50 people who were around the girl are considered at risk so they've been prescribed preventive antibiotics to protect them.
