Westbrook Toddler's Death Sparks Regional Health Warning

The death last week of a 2-year-old Westbrook girl from what appears to be
meningitis prompted a statewide health alert and notices this week to parents of
schoolchildren in the area. The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention
issued a high-priority alert Friday evening to health care providers and school
officials, citing a "bacterial blood infection in Cumberland County."
