Kansas cheerleaders among thousands possibly exposed to mumps at Dallas competition

Thousands of cheerleaders who may have been exposed to the mumps last month at a national competition in Texas are now bracing to see if anyone gets sick.

This letter is to inform you that you or your child may have been exposed to a person with mumps at the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) All-Star National Championship on February 23 to February 25, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

Developing symptoms can take as long as 25 days after a person is infected with mumps, but it happens typically between 14 and 18 days, the health department says. "People with mumps are infectious three days before to five days after swollen glands appear".

Mumps is spread by saliva or germs spread in the air through a cough or sneeze.

Doctors usually give the first MMR dosage to children aged 12 to 15 months and the second dose is injected at four to six years.

Montana's two senators weigh in on NAFTA talks
USA negotiators have proposed changes to the Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) agreement concerning the auto industry. Trump has repeatedly threatened to dump the treaty, and the tension surrounding steel tariffs has stirred new doubts.

Many people do not have exhibit any symptoms.

A total of 130 mumps infections were reported in 25 states between January 1-27, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No one from Texas has reported a related case. In 2016, 6,366 cases were reported - the worst year for mumps in the USA since the MMR vaccine program was introduced in 1977.

"Before the USA mumps vaccination program started in 1967, mumps was a universal disease of childhood", the CDC points out on its website. Many traveled from out-of-state.

There is no treatment for mumps, but typical recovery time is a few weeks.

The Mayo Clinic expresses that the infection is spread by spit - by "taking in salivation beads of a tainted individual who has quite recently wheezed or hacked" or from "offering utensils or containers to somebody who has mumps".
