"During this investigation, (the health department) recommends that UA students, faculty and staff not vaccinated with two doses of measles, mumps, rubella vaccine (MMR), immediately receive a second MMR at Student Health Center, their doctor, or health department", the health department said in the announcement.

Isolation is of critical importance in preventing the spread of mumps.

"It's always concerning to see outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases because we have the tools to prevent them", said Ian Culbert, executive director of the Canadian Public Health Association.

Mumps is usually diagnosed based on symptoms and a history of exposure to the illness.

In the past several weeks, there have been reported cases of mumps in Great Bend, Colby, Pittsburg and the University of Kansas.

What Does the Sunday Penalty Rate Cut Mean for You?
There is no evidence to suggest that reducing minimum entitlements like penalty rates will lead to net employment growth. Professor Stewart said any decision to reduce penalty rates would not signal the end of Sunday penalty rates entirely.

Mumps is a contagious viral infection that can cause painful swelling of the salivary glands, especially the parotid glands. Complications from mumps, although rare, can include inflammation of the testicles, ovaries, breasts and/or brain.

Wilson explained that even those who get two doses of the vaccine can still sometimes end up with mumps - as seen in 40 per cent of the Toronto cases - as the vaccine is considered about 88 per cent effective at that point. The vaccine is part of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) and MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox) vaccines.

Anyone who experiences symptoms of mumps during spring break or while on travel should contact a health care provider in close proximity. "People should also wash hands, cover coughs, clean surfaces, and stay home when ill", ADPH Assistant State Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers said. The students isolated themselves for the recommended five days and no longer have symptoms.

According to a Friday news release, the department is working with University Health Services to investigate both confirmed cases and additional potential cases. Professionals have been in contact with those closely associated with the infected individuals and continue to monitor each situation carefully.
