Contagious And At UMass

University of Massachusetts health  officials are issuing an advisory about a student with a potential  dangerous contagious illness.  

The executive director of health services  at UMass on Wednesday said a student was diagnosed with a sickness  caused by a bacteria strain that can sometimes cause meningitis, which  can be fatal if not treated.  

Anyone who has come into contact with the  student in the highest risk of getting sick.  

The university says  students should avoid sharing food and drink, and cover coughs and  sneezes with a tissue.
