INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two more cases of mumps have been confirmed at IUPUI, officials said Friday.

That brings the total number of cases on campus to three.

School officials said there is no known link between cases of the rare disease.

The university has been working with the Marion County Health Department and the state health department to identify and notify anyone who may have been in contact with the people diagnosed.

Mumps symptoms, which include fever, headache and loss of appetite, typically develop 12 to 25 days after exposure.

The outbreak isn’t limited to IUPUI.

Twenty-one cases of mumps have been reported recently at Butler University. IU Bloomington has seen at least eight confirmed cases on its campus.

Four other cases have been reported in Marion County. All of the recent mumps cases in Marion County were found in people 19 to 26 years old.
