LONDONDERRY, N.H. (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) — A Londonderry High School faculty member was diagnosed with viral meningitis this week.
Superintendent Nathan Greenberg sent a letter to parents and faculty and staff members in the district Tuesday, informing them of the confirmed case, including information about the disease.
Greenberg said there is no cause for alarm and that viral meningitis is generally much less contagious than bacterial meningitis. He also said the state Department of Health and Human Services has not declared it a public health issue.
The faculty member's name has not been released.
