Mumps in Halifax school

First it was the measles…now it’s the mumps turning up in a Halifax school.

Health officials are warning students and staff at Halifax West High School to watch for symptoms of the infectious disease.

So far it’s just the one case but officials haven’t said if it’s in a student or staff member.

Three cases of measles were reported several days ago in Halifax, prompting another warning by health officials. Both measles and mumps are usually covered by the same vacinne most kids get.
