Five Cases Of Mumps Confirmed At Indiana University

Alberta Health Services said officials are investigating a number of potential cases of mumps in the Edmonton-area, in addition to cases in other parts of the province and the country.

You might be wondering how someone gets the mumps.

Justin McDaniel, a Penn State spokesperson, said there have been four cases confirmed by lab test and 15 more students are suspected to have the disease. "Students who have been diagnosed with mumps or are experiencing symptoms of the virus should check with PSU Health Services before returning to the State College campus". The vaccine is part of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) and MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox) vaccines.

McGeer said there was nothing overly worrisome about the recent mumps and measles cases but noted that they served as a reminder of the importance of immunization efforts. During a mumps outbreak, people identified as a contact of a suspected, probable or confirmed case of mumps who do not have proof of vaccination will be excluded from campus for 26 days after the last possible date of exposure.
