Central Virginia health officials say they've seen a dramatic rise in the number of viral meningitis cases in the area.
More than 40 cases of the disease have been reported to the local health district during the month of August.
Aseptic.. or viral meningitis is a benign, self-limiting illness that infects the central nervous system.
Symptoms include headache, fever, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, nausea and vomiting.
