Metro State has been advised that there is not currently a known outbreak on the Auraria Campus. As a precautionary measure, representatives from the Health Center are in the process of communicating directly with all students who were previously in class with the now deceased student.
\u00b3For persons who develop meningococcal disease, the illness may occur very suddenly and get worse rapidly,\u00b4 said Steve Monaco, director of the Health Center at Auraria. Monaco said it is essential that medical intervention be sought if one develops any of the symptoms outlined by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment meningococcal disease fact sheet.
\u00b3We encourage our entire student body to learn more about this disease through the provided fact sheet, and to consider getting vaccinated,\u00b4 said Monaco. The meningococcal immunization and other recommended adult vaccines are available at the Health Center at Auraria.
Every year between 100 and 125 meningitis cases occur on college campuses and up to 15 students die as a result of this serious disease. Research proves students are at higher risk due to lifestyle factors such as crowded living environments, sharing of personal property, decreased immune systems and lack of sleep. The symptoms of Meningitis are often mistaken for common flu, cold or fever. If not treated early possible complications include: hearing loss, seizures, amputation of limbs or death.
