EUGENE, Ore. — A fraternity and sorority held a party at the home of the third University of Oregon student diagnosed with a contagious bacterial infection — meningococcemia.
Lane County Public Health is contacting the students to tell them they may want an antibiotic to stop the spread of the disease.
KVAL reports the agency and the University of Oregon have not identified the fraternity and sorority involved.
Jason Davis with the county health department says the ill student recognized the flu-like symptoms early and is in stable condition.
He was the third student in a month with the disease. The first two are women. The university has notified other students and faculty who may have had contact with them. Another woman with symptoms did not have the serious disease.
