Three U of M Students Diagnosed with Mumps
Mumps is most commonly known for causing puffy cheeks and a swollen jaw.
Three students at the Ann Arbor University of Michigan campus have been diagnosed with the mumps.
The university is assuring students that they are working with public health officials, Michigan Medicine and on-campus partners are working to "identify, treat and prevent mumps."
People who are immunized against mumps usually express mild symptoms that go away on their own, although it's a very easily-transmitted disease, especially on a crowded college campus.
If you suspect that you may be ill and are a student, University Health System patient or staff, you can call UHS patients and others in the campus community may call UHS at 734-764-8320.
