BLOOMINGTON — After three confirmed mumps cases earlier this year, Indiana University has confirmed three more students on the Bloomington campus have been diagnosed with the illness, bringing this year’s total to six.
Spokesperson Chuck Carney said the school is continuing to monitor the cases and work with the state and county departments of health.
Per the CDC, three cases indicates an outbreak, so that was declared last month.
The school is offering free MMR doses to students who are in close contact with the latest cases. Carney said the infection is not widespread throughout campus.
