Rumors that an outbreak of meningitis among the Rainbow Family huddled up on National Forest land in Newton County near Fallsville have been clarified: Ed Barham of the state health department confirms that one person was hospitalized with bacterial meningitis last Saturday and that three health department nurses spent their Independence Day at the campout giving prophylactic Cipro (an antibiotic) to 43 people who'd come in contact with the woman who was hospitalized.


Barham said they traveled up on July 3, but were prevented from entering the camp area because of a drug bust.
