SUNY Geneseo confirms new case of mumps on campus

Geneseo, N.Y. (WHAM) - A new case of mumps has been confirmed Thursday on the SUNY Geneseo campus.

A student living on campus has been confirmed to be the patient.

A letter was sent out to the SUNY Geneseo campus community, requesting any students who were not immunized to leave the campus for a minimum of 26 days and not to return until March 1.

This follows 14 confirmed cases of mumps for the college back in December: six on-campus and eight off-campus.

Another case was confirmed at RIT in December, as well.

Any students who suspect they may have mumps should visit Geneseo's Lauderdale Center for Student Health and Counseling via web-booking or by calling (585) 245-5736.
