Mumps Cases Confirmed on Stevens Campus

Thursday, Apr 17, 2014

Health officials today confirmed several cases of mumps on the campus of the Stevens Institute of Technology. The cases were first identified as suspected cases last week, and there have been no reports of new cases since last week.

“The City’s Health Department has been working closely with Stevens since the beginning and we are thankful for their responsiveness and proactive efforts,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of the public. The best way to prevent mumps is vaccination. Members of our community should follow the recommendations from health officials and contact their doctor if they believe they may have symptoms. We will keep the community informed of any new developments.”

The New Jersey Department of Health has created a flyer of Frequently Asked Questions regarding mumps: www.state.nj.us/health/cd/documents/mumps/mumps_public_faq_04172014.pdf. Additional information and resources can be found at the NJ Department of Health website: www.state.nj.us/health/cd/mumps/. More >
