The outbreak of mumps continues to spread across the University of Missouri Columbia campus. The case count is up to 73 according to MU Student Health.

Some of these cases include students living in residence halls while others include students living off campus.

The virus is predominantly spreading through the Greek Life community.

Student Health associate Pam Roe said prevention is the most important focus at this point.

“You’re able to spread the virus without even knowing that you have it,” Roe said.
