Update regarding death of student Maggie O'Sullivan

This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on April 21 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

University officials are aware of various rumors circulating among the campus community related to the potential cause of Maggie O’Sullivan’s death on Friday night.

At this time, we have no reason to believe alcohol, or any other form of self-inflicted injury, contributed to her passing.  Further, Dr. Chris Ohl, MD, Infectious Diseases specialist at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, has reviewed available clinical information and has concluded that at this time there is no indication that there is a risk of transmission of a serious or life-threatening illness to other persons related to this death. If currently pending laboratory tests suggest otherwise, potential contacts will be notified as to whether evaluation and preventive treatment is necessary.
