Mumps virus

The South Harrison School District is warning about a possible mumps exposure during a basketball tournament earlier this month.

The school district said it was notified Thursday that a person from the Putnam County School District in attendance at the South Harrison Basketball Tournament held Monday, Jan 9 through Thursday, Jan. 13 has been diagnosed with mumps.

The school said being properly immunized is the best protection. However, someone who is immunized may still catch the disease.  It said symptoms start to show 12 to 25 days after exposure.  Anyone who displays symptoms should see their healthcare provider.
