The disease typically begins with fever, headache, muscle pain, fatigue and loss of appetite, followed by swollen salivary glands, according to the CDC. While a vaccine is available to protect against the disease, outbreaks can still occur in situations where people have prolonged contact with an infected patient, such as classrooms, dormitories or sports teams.
The outbreak at Temple University began last week with health officials issuing a warning to anyone who may have come in contact with two other suspected cases in Montgomery County, the investigator reported.
