DAVISON, MI (WNEM) -

Meningitis has been confirmed at a fifth school district in Mid-Michigan.

Davison Community Schools sent a letter home to parents confirming a student at Gates Elementary School has viral meningitis.

The letter informed parents that the school had taken steps to thoroughly clean the student's bus and the entire elementary school.

This is just the latest case of viral meningitis reported in a Mid-Michigan student

At least two other school districts have reported cases.

At least one case of bacterial meningitis, a more deadly form of the illness, was reported in a Swartz Creek student last month.
