It’s official — we’ve got mumps, Aaron Kessler reports in today’s Daily Progress. Or, at least, UVa has mumps. There are now three cases among undergrads, all of which are linked. There are another twelve suspected cases, with just four among non-students. The school has set up a quarantine building, nicknamed Mumps House, where two of the infected students are riding out the illness.
The CDC has a good explanation of Mumps, and the NIH provides extra detail for those who want to know more.
