Mumps in Manitoba

Since September 2016 Manitoba has experienced an outbreak of Mumps. The majority of the cases are in individuals between the ages of 17 and 29. Since many of the individuals who contracted the virus have been involved in sporting events as players, coaches or referees, Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living (MHSAL) would like to ensure that all sporting organizations are aware of the current outbreak.

The mumps virus can be spread to others from two to three days before and four to five days after symptoms appear. Some people infected with mumps may not have any symptoms at all, but can still spread the virus to other people. MHSAL therefore asks all organizations to please inform their members about this situation. It is important to recognize the symptoms of mumps, know how to prevent the spread of this disease and be aware of what people should do if they suspect they may be infected with the mumps virus.
