Officials in the Morgan County R-2 School District (Versailles) are keeping a close eye on what is being described as a probable case of viral meningitis in the middle school. Superintendent Doctor Joyce Ryerson notified parents on Wednesday to be on the lookout for any symptoms in their children. Those symptoms include: fever, headache, a stiff neck and nausea. Of particular concern, according to Dr. Ryerson, are those children religiously exempt from inoculations or have recently been diagnosed with strep but the symptoms still continue to persist after treatment with antibiotics. The incubation period for viral meningitis is 3-6 days before any symptoms are apparent. The illness is usually less severe than bacterial meningitis with most people getting better on their own without treatment. The school district is working in conjunction with the Morgan County Health Department to take precautions as necessary to minimize other children from becoming exposed to the meningitis.
