Local News

 Penn State is urging all students to closely monitor their health as cases of mumps continue to rise at the main campus.

A third case of mumps has been confirmed by University Health Services and 2 more cases are suspected.

This is since the start of April. Anyone who’s been in contact with these latest students is urged to avoid crowds like the Blue-White game.

Generally, the virus is spread through saliva. Symptoms of mumps often include tender swollen glands below the ear or along the jawline on one or both sides of the face or neck, headache, fever, and cold-like symptoms.
