Mumps in Sport and Recreation
There have been a number of reports of mumps outbreaks in sport and recreation environments in Canada in recent weeks. The Public Health Agency of Canada strongly encourages sharing this information to high performance directors, medical teams, coaches, parents, and, if appropriate, to your athletes at all levels of the sport system. If you observe any cases of mumps linked to sporting events or teams, it is recommended that you notify the Medical Officer of Health for your jurisdiction.
