There is a potential for mumps cases in Wayne County. There have been 116 reported cases of mumps in Ohio in the last three months. Several probable cases have been reported this week to their respective Health Departments (Holmes County, Ashland County, and Richland County), and are currently being investigated. We hope that by being proactive in our surveillance we can avert an outbreak or a large increase in the number of mumps cases for our county. Hopefully, this advisory will assist you in diagnosing cases of mumps by knowing it is currently circulating in our communities.
