JMU men's basketball postpones two games following mumps outbreak”

All student-athletes and personnel on the men's and women's JMU basketball programs have received MMR booster injections as a precaution.

"Within the JMU coaching staff, there was one probable case of mumps in an individual who has since recovered", JMU athletics communication said.

A suspected case of the mumps has forced Thursday's men's basketball game between UNCW and James Madison to be postponed. Three others have suspected cases with no confirmed diagnosis and one student-athlete is possibly affected. Confirmatory testing has been initiated.

The dates that the program will reschedule these games has yet to be decided. It can be spread by coughing, sneezing or talking, sharing items such as cups or eating utensils, and/or touching objects or surfaces with unwashed hands, according to the CDC's website. Its symptoms can appears from 12 to 25 days after exposure, and those symptoms include body aches, fever and swollen or tender salivary glands. People can protect themselves with a vaccination.

JMU announced they would not be competing this week after members of the team could have been exposed to a possible mumps outbreak on campus.
