The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) shares the academic communities' concerns for the seven students diagnosed with bacterial meningitis at Princeton University since March 2013. DPHS is monitoring the situation closely and is maintaining communication with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). New Hampshire's colleges and universities are not at increased risk associated with the Princeton outbreak.
Dr. John Turco, Co-Director of the Dartmouth College Health Service, has been in close communication with DPHS and Infectious Disease Specialists at DHMC. At this time, there is no reason to exclude Princeton students, including athletes, from participating in events on the Dartmouth campus. There is no need for increased concern for the health of those in the Dartmouth community and there are no additional preventive measures required.
In an effort to keep all New Hampshire campuses healthy and safe, DPHS is providing additional information about meningococcal disease. This information is available here.
