BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana State Department of Health says a third student has been diagnosed with mumps at Indiana University in Bloomington.
A student was diagnosed with the virus this week after two confirmed cases last month. IU spokesman Chuck Carney says in the most recent case the student lived off-campus and left campus for this week’s spring break, which ends Sunday. Carney says the student’s infectious period ended Tuesday. Carney says the student was vaccinated for mumps.
University and health officials said Feb. 22 that two students who were roommates in an off-campus apartment contracted the disease. It’s unknown if the third student had contact with the roommates.
Symptoms of the viral infection include fever, muscle aches, headache and loss of appetite. IU previously had five mumps cases in early 2016.
