In brief: Supportive care

Uncomplicated viral meningitis is treated generally as an outpatient with supportive care only such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for fever and/or pain.
Any person showing more severe symptoms, neurologic complications, or other concerning symptom is admitted to the hospital for specific treatments for their complications.
