Three suspected cases of mumps in Chapel Hill just last week and now a confirmation on the disease in Charlotte. Health officials say an elementary school student became ill last month with the mumps. This is the first reported case of mumps in the area in several years. Mumps is highly contagious and causes a low-grade fever and painful swelling around the neck. Children are usually vaccinated against mumps, but some medical experts think the vaccine weakens as people age. A mumps vaccination is required by law in North Carolina for every child before they enter school.
