STCU advising of employee with meningitis

Fri., May 8, 2009, 10:45 a.m.

Spokane Teachers Credit Union members who’ve recently used its main and Cheney branches are being advised that an employee there has been hospitalized with viral meningitis.

While the risk of spreading the disease is considered small, the credit union this morning issued an alert so that customers would be aware of it.

The employee was on duty at the Cheney branch from April 27 through May 1 and at the main branch, 106 W. Nora Ave., on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The credit union recommends that anyone who may have been exposed and is feeling ill with headache, stiff neck and fever should consult a physician.

In addition to the public notice, STCU management has taken steps to disinfect work areas and is offering hand sanitizers to staff and credit union members.
