No mumps outbreak in Lake County despite newly identified cases, officials say

No mumps outbreak in Lake County despite newly identified cases, officials say

Now officials have raised that number to three confirmed cases at the high school.

"The risk of acquiring the mumps in Toronto schools is low because most schools have high vaccination rates and the mumps vaccine is required for school attendance in Ontario", the letter said.

On the heels of a mumps outbreak at Barrington High School, officials at the Chicago Public Schools were monitoring a possible case of the highly infectious virus at an Andersonville elementary school.

There is a confirmed case in city of Barrington and another probable case in Lake Zurich. The case has not been confirmed and the Chicago Department of Public Health considers it a preliminary diagnosis.

"Not terribly concerned, but I'm kind of surprised to see how many cases there are in Barrington", said parent Melissa Proepsting. There is also one suspected case in Cook County, in Arlington Heights.


The highly contagious virus spreads through coughing, sneezing and coming into contact with a person's saliva.

Toronto Public Health is investigating what health officials say is now a community outbreak.

"However, if there are multiple cases in a school...we actually have the ability to exclude students who are not up-to-date with their immunizations from school", Dubey said.

Chicago Public Schools notified parents on Monday about a case of mumps at Helen C. Peirce School of International Studies, 1423 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., according to the district. Unvaccinated children should be kept home if mumps breaks out in their schools.
