WEST BABYLON - A staffer at West Babylon Senior High School has been diagnosed with viral meningitis.

The West Babylon School District is not saying whether the staff member is a teacher. Students at the school say they hadn't heard about it yet, but say a lot of people seem to be sick this time of the year.

In a statement, the West Babylon School District said it is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation and sanitized all surfaces in the rooms occupied by the staff member and will continue "routine surface cleanings" throughout the school building.
