A student at Corvallis High School is being treated at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center for diagnosed meningococcal disease.
Benton County Health Department is working with medical providers, family, and the Corvallis School District to identify those who may have had enough exposure to need preventive antibiotic treatment.
An investigation is currently being conducted, and it is likely that there will only be a few people who will actually need preventive treatment. See the links to questions and answers below for more detailed information about meningococcal disease and its prevention. If you have additional questions about Meningitis please contact the Benton County Communicable Disease Nurse at 541-766-6654 or 541-766-6255.

Oregon Department of Education Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton, Oregon Education Association President Hanna Vaandering, and Confederation of Oregon School Administrators Executive Director Craig Hawkins announced the results of the Teaching, Empowering, Leading, and Learning (TELL) Oregon Survey which was administered state-wide this spring. Over 19,300, or just under 60%, of school-based educators around the state completed the survey which covered questions related to teaching and learning conditions in their schools. Results of the survey will be used to support ongoing improvement efforts in our schools, districts, and at the state policy-making level.
To access results by school and district, please visit www.telloregon.org.
