A small number of students have been confirmed as having contracted mumps. If you are suffering from any of the symptoms outlined in the attached flyer it is suggested that you should isolate yourself from other students until you are no longer infectious. If you are in halls please contact your hall Warden.

In order to avoid the infection you should maintain good hygiene and also ensure that you have been vaccinated against mumps. Check with your parents or your GP to see if you have already been vaccinated. If you have not been vaccinated you should contact the University Health Centre (or your local GP if you have not yet registered) to get this done.
