NEW BRUNSWICK (AP) — Officials at Rutgers University say two students have been diagnosed with bacterial meningitis, and both students were hospitalized.

The latest case was reported Saturday while the other student was sent to the hospital on Feb. 4. NJ.com reports the first hospitalized student has been since released.

The student admitted to the hospital over the weekend is being tested to determine the type of bacteria that caused the infection.

Health officials have not yet recommended that Rutgers cancel any activities or classes on campus. The university says it is monitoring the situation with local, county and regional health officials.

A Rutgers spokesman couldn't immediately provide the ages and genders of the students or say whether they were undergraduates or graduate students.
