Health department investigating mumps cases at UA
While the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Ellis County Health Department have identified one confirmed case of mumps in Ellis County and are working to find out how the resident might have contracted the disease, the case did not involve a Hays USD 489 student.
Anyone with a confirmed mumps infection, individuals awaiting test results, or close contacts of anyone with mumps who has not been previously vaccinated, should remain isolated for a recommended period of time as directed by health care professionals. The virus is mostly spread by coughing, sneezing or other contact with saliva from someone who is infected.
"In light of these confirmed mumps cases, and with spring break fast approaching, it is very important for PSU students to avoid sharing food and drinks with others and to monitor their overall health", said Secretary of Health Karen Murphy.
"The risk of mumps can be significantly reduced with two MMR vaccines".
In Alberta, officials said there were four confirmed cases of mumps among students at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, which typically sees zero to two cases each year. It is as contagious as flu and those infected usually are contagious before symptoms appear and for a few days after, so they can spread the virus without realizing it, according to the announcement.
