The number of mumps cases reported in July increased from last month and was above the previous 5-year average.
The 36 mumps cases in July were reported among the 7 counties outlined in black. From May through July 2019 the average county rate varied throughout the state.
From January 1, 2019 through July 31, 2019, 100 mumps cases were reported in 15 counties.
The annual number of reported mumps cases increased in 2017 and 2018. Case counts in July 2019 are higher than those seen in July of previous years, as noted by the white bar in the figure.
In July, 22 (61%) of 36 cases were outbreak-associated and no cases were associated with transmission in households. For most mumps cases, exposure to other known cases is never identified, and they are not able to be linked to outbreaks.
No new mumps outbreaks were reported in July, but outbreak-associated cases from two ongoing outbreaks were reported. Investigations are still ongoing for an outbreak in a university setting and an outbreak in a detention facility setting.
