Published:
BELLINGHAM -- Ten friends of a Western Washington University student are being treated with antibiotics after it was confirmed he has a meningococcal infection.
The Bellingham Herald reported that the student was hospitalized over the weekend and a lab test Monday confirmed the disease.
The university said no other cases have been identified, and those who had casual contact with him, such as sharing a class, are unlikely to get meningitis.
