Health officials: Vaccination is key

Individual with mumps should isolate themselves, officials say.

Local health officials said this week that the most important action people with mumps can take is to isolate themselves from others.

“We’re really the epicenter of Oregon right now,” said Dr. Keith Graham, Union County public health officer at Grande Ronde Hospital. “People need to stay home if they have it. Stay away from anybody as much as possible until they’re over it.”
