Three Cases of Mumps Reported at Andress High School

A childhood illness once thought eradicated in the United States has been diagnosed at Andress High.
Three people have been diagnosed with the virus, which is highly contagious and is spread through coughing and contact with saliva.

The El Paso school district could not specify whether the patients were all students.

Parents were notified through a letter that was sent home with students.

The school district is also working with the city health department.

Fernando Gonzalez, the lead epidemiologist for the El Paso Public Health Department, appeared Wednesday on ABC-7 at Four to discuss the cases.
