Cath News report: A case of meningococcal disease has been confirmed at the Catholic Chanel College in Gladstone, Queensland, but the school said students are not considered at risk of transmission.
Principal Sharon Volp has confirmed a student has been diagnosed with probable meningococcal disease and is currently undergoing treatment in Brisbane, reports the Gladstone Observer.
A letter was sent home to parents on Monday advising them of the situation.
The letter stated that Queensland Health has no concerns with regard to the transmission of meningococcal in a school setting and class contacts are not considered to be at risk.
"The care of our students and staff is of paramount importance to us and we will continue to work closely with the Diocesan Catholic Education Office and Queensland Health to implement any future recommendations they make in relation to this matter," Miss Volp said.
