UW-Madison health officials indicate mumps cases aren't related

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - UW-Madison officials say three cases of the mumps do not appear to be related.

The University Health Services office said Thursday that three Madison campus students came down with contagious disease that's spread either through the air -- or from contact with saliva or infected droplets.

Officials said flu-like symptoms often appear 16 to 18 days after a person is infected, often followed by cheek and jaw swelling.

The UW urged everyone in Madison to wash their hands on a regular basis, and stay home if they get sick.

People are also being encouraged to check on their MMR vaccines, and make sure they're up to date.
