IU mumps outbreak grows to 6 student casesApril 4, 2019
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — Indiana University officials say six students have now been diagnosed with mumps amid an outbreak of the virus on the Bloomington campus.
IU spokesman Chuck Carney says three more mumps cases were confirmed late last week. The first two cases were confirmed in February and a campus outbreak of the illness was declared last month after a third case was confirmed.
Carney says five of the six students diagnosed with the viral infection live off campus. He says the university and health officials are offering free vaccinations to anyone who came in close contact with those with the illness, which most often occurs in children and teens at schools and dormitories.
IU previously had five mumps cases in early 2016.
Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache and loss of appetite.
