Mumps Case Involving District 186 Employee
Springfield District 186 says an employee had a confirmed case of mumps. The district was notified late Friday. Officials say the employee had NOT been in contact with any students during the time of being contagious.
The employee has not been identified, nor the location where they work. Staff who were in contact with the individual have been notified.
District 186 says a majority of students have received the mumps vaccine. It says if mumps are confirmed in a school, parents of those kids without immunizations would be notified.
The district is advising anyone with concerns to contact their doctor or the Sangamon County Public Health Department.
The district sent a note to parents Monday. Read that letter here.
