A Kentucky judge ordered her courtroom scrubbed after learning a lawyer had been quarantined for possible meningitis.

Judge Leigh Ann Stephens of Perry County pitched in to help, WKYT.com reports. “We’ve got some Clorox and the janitors are coming up; we’re going to just make sure that everything’s clean,” she said.

County health officials said the lawyer apparently had viral meningitis, which is less severe than the bacterial form of the disease.
