Press Release: February 16, 2017

Mumps Outbreak Joins Growing Measles Outbreak in Salt Lake County

Confirmed measles cases up to two; officials also report two confirmed cases of mumps in the county.

The Salt Lake County Health Department (SLCoHD) announced today that it is investigating two confirmed cases of mumps in Salt Lake County. This mumps outbreak joins an unrelated measles outbreak in underscoring the importance of all community members being current on recommended vaccines. The MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is widely available at your health care provider or local health department. For an immunization appointment, call 385-468-SHOT (7468).

Mumps

The two people infected with mumps attend the same school, and SLCoHD has notified individuals associated with the affected school. In addition to these two confirmed cases, the department is investigating an additional four probably mumps cases that are awaiting test results. These probable cases had contact with one of the confirmed cases.

Four of the six total mumps cases had received at least one MMR vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that one MMR is 78% effective in preventing mumps; the recommended two doses of MMR are 88% effective against the disease.

Symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, fatigue and swollen, tender salivary glands under one or both ears. Some people who get mumps have very mild or no symptoms, and often they do not know they have the disease. Most people with mumps recover completely in a few weeks, but in some cases mumps can result in serious complications, including deafness, meningitis or encephalitis.

Measles

In Salt Lake County’s ongoing measles outbreak, officials have confirmed one more case in addition to the case announced last week. The new case had contact with the first case.

One of the two individuals with measles had received one MMR vaccine. One MMR is 93% effective in preventing measles; two doses of MMR are 97% effective.

Symptoms of measles include a fever of 101F or higher, cough, runny nose and a rash that spreads to cover the body. The rash usually occurs within two weeks of exposure. The virus is transmitted by respiratory droplets from coughing or sneezing, and is so contagious that over 90 percent of people in close contact with an infectious person will get the disease if they’re not immunized.

If you develop symptoms of measles, call your healthcare provider and let them know you may have measles. It is important that you do not visit a physician’s office, emergency room, lab or any medical clinic without first calling the facility and informing them of your exposure to measles. This will enable the facility to take the necessary precautions to protect other individuals from possible exposure.

In the case of both measles and mumps, the public health system has notified individuals who may have had contact with the infected residents.

Herriman Community, we have heard concerns regarding billing statements on Xpress Bill Pay that reflect a previous balance due. We have been in contact with them and they are creating a solution. They are working to void any automated payments that are reflecting a previous balance and process the automated payments with the correct amount. We appreciate your patience as we work with them on resolving the issue. If you have any additional questions regarding your bill, please contact our office. Thank you.

IS THERE A SILENT KILLER LURKING IN YOUR HOME?

According to the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, high radon levels can be found in 30% of Utah homes.

What is Radon? 

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. Due to its radioactivity, it is considered a health hazard. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, responsible for roughly 20,000 deaths each year.

Where is it Found? 

Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas found in the atmosphere. Due to being heavier and more dense than air, it tends to accumulate in buildings, including homes, and particularly basements.  It is generated from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rocks and water which travels through the air. It then can enter your home through cracks in the floors, construction joints, wall cracks, gaps in suspended floors, gaps around service pipes, cavities inside walls, and sometimes even the water supply.

How Can it be Removed/Reduced? 

Radon testing is one of first steps in tackling the threat. Radon kits include a test that collects air over a period of days that will give a reading of the radon levels. The Environmental Protection Agency action level is 4.0. If the readings are high, it is time for the homeowner to begin mitigating the problem. A mitigation system works by boring a hole in the basement concrete and adding a suction pump to pull the gases to the outside. The mitigation system not only vents the radon, it reduces air particles and mold.

For more information on radon testing, or to obtain a radon kit, visit radon.utah.gov
