Some forms of meningitis are contagious, but the one caused by fungus is not. The majority of meningitis cases that have made the news (although the majority of cases are from the ones spread by virus and bacteria – the contagious ones) recently have not been from the contagious ones. Meningitis by definition is the inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal chord.

When meningitis is caused by a virus or bacteria — as is most common — it can spread from person to person. Bacterial meningitis can spread through kissing, and viral meningitis can spread when people come in contact with the feces of an infected person, which can happen when changing a diaper, or when a person does not properly wash their hands after using the toilet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
