NYS DOH Advisory - Mumps outbreak on college campuses

    Message # 4464904

    Cases of mumps have been identified in increasing numbers on college campuses in New York and across the United States. As students return home for winter break there is the potential that exposed students will develop mumps and present to local healthcare providers for evaluation. 

    Currently, the State Universities of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz and Geneseo are experiencing mumps outbreaks. Sixty-one individuals who have been diagnosed with mumps are epidemiologically linked to the SUNY New Paltz Campus outbreak and 16 cases of mumps have been diagnosed that are associated with SUNY Geneseo. Suspect cases are under investigation at both institutions. More cases are expected to occur.
