Temple Mumps Cases Up to 49

Philly Voice

The number of reported cases of the mumps at Temple University continued to rise this week, and the Philadelphia school is taking new steps to try and curb the spread.

Nearly 50 students have either tested positive or been listed as probable for mumps, Temple’s Student Health Services announced Friday. Twelve students have tested positive, and another 37 have been listed as probable.

Health officials say there are at least 46 cases of the mumps at Temple University and three others from surrounding counties, the most cases in the city since 2010.

That’s up from 16 cases reported last week.

The Department of Public Health for Philadelphia said Friday it recommends anyone experiencing fever, headache, jaw pain or fatigue see their regular or campus doctor.

Spokesman James Garrow said the effectiveness of the mumps vaccination tends to wane over time so it’s not necessarily a case of unvaccinated people.

Doctor Kristen Feemster, medical director of the immunization and communicable diseases program of the Philadelphia Health Department, says several factors may be making mumps more likely at universities.

“Over time, your immune response might decrease a little bit – probably about the time you’re a young adult, and on a college campus,” Dr. Feemster says.

“A college campus is a close-knit community, where there are probably more opportunities for transmission than you might have in other places,” she adds.

Health department officials say at least 38 cases of mumps have been confirmed at Temple University.

The Department of Public Health for Philadelphia said the effectiveness of the mumps vaccination tends to wane over time so it’s not necessarily a case of unvaccinated people.

The Philadelphia Health Department says there are now 23 cases tied to the mumps outbreak reported at Temple University.

It’s the city’s largest outbreak of the mumps since 2011, but it may not due to students skipping vaccines.

The policy change follows a mumps outbreak that the university announced on Feb. 28. As of Tuesday, there are 23 total Temple-related mumps cases. Jim Garrow, the director of communications for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, told The Temple News there are 20 cases in Philadelphia and three in the suburbs.

Temple reported that there were 11 confirmed cases and 12 probable cases. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health said it was now counting the two categories as one because the outbreak of the highly infectious disease is established and the agency has stopped recommending that people get tested for confirmation.

“If someone reports to Student Health with symptoms consistent with mumps we are counting them as a case,” said agency spokesperson James Garrow.
