Dear Student,

Please be aware that there has been an increase in the number of suspected mumps cases at Mary Immaculate College today.

The highest rate of infection is among those aged between 15 and 24 years. Outbreaks have occurred in schools and colleges.

Mumps infection may cause a fever, headache and swelling or tenderness of one or more of the salivary glands in the cheeks, in front of and below the ear or at the jawline. 

If you think you have mumps you should not attend college until all signs and symptoms have cleared and your temperature is back to normal. Phone your own GP or phone the Medical Centre for advice. Please notify your placement provider if you are on placement and email the Education Office at educationoffice@mic.ul.ie if you are absent from college due to mumps.

More information is available at the HSE website at the following link: http://www.hse.ie/eng/health/az/M/Mumps/

Any member of staff with mumps should also follow the HSE guidance and contact your GP for advice and notify your Line Manager and Human Resources of your absence.
