District health officer Kevin Dick says they currently are attempting to notify anyone who may have been exposed to the disease while the unidentified patient was infectious.

He says the infected student visited the UNR Student Health Center on Monday. Other places the student visited during the previous six days include the Squaw Valley ski resort at Lake Tahoe, two urgent care clinics in Sparks and a wide variety of UNR campus buildings.



Anyone who may have been exposed should call the Washoe County Health District at 775-328-2447.
