A health alert from the Department of Health and Human Services was sent out to health care providers about a recent Mumps outbreak in a university setting. There are no reported cases of mumps at Doane University at this time and this email notice is precautionary.
Ten cases of mumps have been identified amongst vaccinated Midland University students in Fremont, Nebraska. The first case reported symptom onset on 4/16 and the most recent case reported symptom onset on 5/13. The Three Rivers Public Health Department and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) are working together to investigate these cases. There is potential for this outbreak to spread to other jurisdictions as these students return home for the summer.
Mumps is an acute viral illness caused by a paramyxovirus. The classic symptom of mumps is parotitis (i.e., acute onset of unilateral or bilateral tender, self-limited swelling of the parotid or other salivary gland(s)), lasting at least two days, but may persist longer than ten days. Incubation period ranges from 12–25 days, but parotitis typically develops 16 to 18 days after exposure to mumps virus. Nonspecific prodromal symptoms may precede parotitis by several days, including low-grade fever which may last three to four days, myalgia, anorexia, malaise, and headache. However, mumps infection may present only with nonspecific or primarily respiratory symptoms or may be a subclinical infection.
The virus can be transmitted by contact with respiratory droplets and nasopharyngeal secretions. Individuals are considered most contagious during the 3 days before and 5 days after onset of symptoms.
What to do if you have symptoms or think you may have been exposed
*Contact your health care provider
*Aggressive isolation is recommended for symptomatic persons for 5 days after symptom onset.
*In addition, any person older than 4 years of age without 2 doses of the MMR vaccine should receive the appropriate catchup dose. Infections can occur among persons of all ages. Individuals who previously had mumps are considered immune to the virus. However, those who have been vaccinated for mumps— though much less likely to contract the virus—can still be infected. Immunocompromised individuals and pregnant woman are at increased risk of complications.
There is no specific treatment for mumps virus except for supportive care of pain and fever as needed.
Vaccination status should be confirmed in accordance with the ACIP-recommended schedule which includes a two-dose regimen of MMR at around age 1 and 6 years. A two dose vaccination is a requirement for enrollment at Doane University.
