On Tuesday, Dec. 13, the Oklahoma Dept. of Health notified our school concerning the potential for the spread of Mumps into our area. THERE ARE NO SUSPECTED CASES IN THE VALLIANT AREA AT THIS TIME! However, they wanted us to be aware that there are currently 20 cases among residents of McCurtain County, and another 7 reports under investigation. Mumps is a virus that is spread from one person to another by coughing, sneezing, kissing and other types of direct contact with saliva, such as sharing food or drink with an infected person. Symptoms of mumps include swelling on one or both sides of the face, tenderness of the salivary glands in the cheek and jaw area, slight fever, headache, general aches and muscle pain. Our school nurse has been very much out front in making sure that we are monitoring the situation closely. Right now, the Health Department does not believe that the disease will spread to our area, but as families come together during the holidays, there is some potential for exposure due to the ongoing outbreaks occurring in Oklahoma and Arkansas. A person with Mumps is contagious for about 5 days, however, the onset of symptoms in someone that is infected may take 12 to 25 days. If parents observe symptoms of mumps in their child, we are strongly requesting that the child be kept at home for the five days after those symptoms are discovered. This is the most effective way to prevent the disease from spreading. Two doses of the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine that are required for school attendance is 88% effective in preventing mumps. The MMR vaccine is recommended on or after a child's first birthday with a second dose at four to six years of age. The McCurtain County Health Department recommends that parents follow-up with their child's healthcare provider to determine if the child is up-to-date on their MMR vaccination. Children that need to receive the MMR vaccine may get it from their healthcare provider or their local county health department. That is the reason they are notifying us now. We need to be aware of the symptoms and procedures to follow so that we can be prepared as we return to school in January. Please follow the link to read the Health Department Fact Sheet for more information concerning Mumps. https://www.ok.gov/health2/documents/Mumps.pdf
