Mumps has spread and health officials urge immunization. Please make sure all family members are current with MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) immunizations. State Law requires complete immunizations for school attendance. Those with incomplete immunizations records or exemptions for MMR will excluded from attending school by directions from the local health jurisdiction – if there is a confirmed case of the disease at a school site. The Washington State Department of Health reminds people across the state to take precautions to help stop the spread of mumps.
