Boston College warns students of possible mumps

Boston College has warned students of a possible mumps outbreak on campus, university officials said, though no cases have been confirmed. “Clinical evaluations suggest the likelihood of a positive diagnosis among several BC students,” BC health services director Dr. Thomas Nary said in an e-mail to the college community Thursday. Roughly a dozen students have presented with mumps-like symptoms, BC spokesman Jack Dunn said, but all tests for the mumps virus came back negative.
