Are MUMPS here again?!

Louisiana's Office of Public Health has reported several cases of mumps at LSU in Baton Rouge and at Loyola in New Orleans. NOTE: NO cases of mumps have been reported in EBR Parish Schools. If you or your child have symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, followed by swelling or tenderness of glands in the throat, please see your healthcare provider immediately. Individuals with mumps should stay home from school or work from 5 days after any swelling begins. Prevention: Receiving two doses of the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine is the best way to prevent mumps. Passing of the mumps virus requires very close contact with an infectious individual, so do not share food or drink.
