Illinois School Reports First Case of Mumps

Barrington High School in Barrington, IL, recently reported its first case of mumps among the student body for the school year. Several additional cases of mumps are also suspected but have yet to be confirmed, according to Brian Harris, superintendent of Barrington School District 220.

The contagious viral disease is usually spread via sneezing, coughing, or from items exposed to contaminated saliva. Currently, the school does not consider the disease’s emergence to be an outbreak because only one case has been confirmed within 50 days, a school district spokesperson told the Chicago Tribune.
