CDC Confirms Mumps

Nov 4 2010 - Samples from 6 local cases were sent to the CDC labs for testing. All 6 tested positive. This merely confirms what was already presumed to be true - this is mumps. There continue to be a trickle of cases. For some this has been a painful experience. There have been cases of adults in the community (not just teens), so anyone experiencing a swollen or painful jawline, should consult with their physician and take precautions not to spread this virus. If we prevent exposure to large numbers of people, the outbreak is likely to peeter out.
