    I’m not clicking either but probably hoof and mouth disease. Only infectious if you are cloven-hooved. Most faculty and students have nothing to worry about, even at an Ag school.

      Thanks for that, very helpful.

      Sadly most but not all. Schill and Coltrane got caught with hoof in mouth recently and it seems to be spreading.

    A meningococcal infection took a senior footballer out of the last few games in November, and one other person came down with it as well. OSU is waiting, wondering if another infection shoe might drop, as three cases of meningococcal nature constitute an official outbreak.

    We had seven cases in 2015, OSU has only two. Another civil war win!

    Oregon Public Health officials have confirmed a seventh case of meningococcal disease linked to a University of Oregon outbreak that began in mid-January. Six previous cases were UO undergraduate students.

      You can have that win… I will say that the OSU response to the initial case was swift and apparently thorough. Well over 100 persons were quickly identified as having worked in proximity to the patient and were provided vaccinations. One or two of my own colleagues were (pleasantly) surprised to hear from the University directly before anyone knew the news so that preventative measures could be deployed.
