Posted February 25, 2017

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.

"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."She advised all students and visitors to make sure their vaccinations are up to date.The mumps virus is characterized by swelling of the glands near the ear and jaw". The AADPH says mumps is a virus spread through saliva and mucus from the mouth, nose or throat.

Since Jan. 29, when the first confirmed case was reported at University Park, 19 suspected, probable or confirmed mumps cases have been investigated. In 2015, there were no confirmed cases in the region, said an AHS spokesperson. Health officials encourage people to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and contact your healthcare provider for additional advice.

High vaccination helps to limit the size, duration and spread of mumps, according to the health department.

"You've got young people in close proximity who may have had only one dose of the vaccine, and then they're sharing water bottles ... and they're in very close proximity in the locker room, in hotel rooms, and on the bus when they're coughing and sneezing". Other symptoms include fever, headache, muscle pain, tiredness and loss of appetite.

The viral infections are both covered by the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) or measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccines.

Mumps, which is a contagious disease caused by the mumps virus, can cause long-term health problems. "ADPH strongly recommends students who do not have any record of MMR and decline to be vaccinated should not attend class for 25 days after exposure to mumps".

"There is no treatment for mumps but there is prevention", the announcement read. The students isolated themselves for the recommended five days and no longer have symptoms.
