Penn State confirms multiple mumps cases at main campus
The Pennsylvania Department of Health is investigating mumps cases on Penn State University's main campus.
A health advisory was issued Friday at Chapman University in Orange after four law students were diagnosed with mumps.
"All PSU students and visitors should also take steps to make sure their vaccinations are up-to-date, as that is the best way to prevent getting the mumps virus", added Secretary Murphy.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials recommend parents to vaccinate their toddlers. Those with no record of MMR that decline to be vaccinated should not attend class for 25 days after exposure to mumps. Because of this surge, federal health officials are now weighing the option of administering a third dose of the MMR vaccine. Other symptoms include fever, headache, muscle pain, tiredness and loss of appetite. The State Health Department says it's now working with Penn State and that no further information regarding the cases will be released due to confidentiality cases. "People should also wash hands, cover coughs, clean surfaces, and stay home when ill", ADPH Assistant State Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers said.
