BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Another case of the mumps has been confirmed at Indiana University. This marks the seventh case so far on the Bloomington campus. 

The first two cases of mumps were confirmed Feb. 21. The patients were roommates, IU spokesperson Chuck Carney said. He said most of the confirmed cases since Feb. 21 have been in close contact with each other.

The Indiana Daily Student says the seventh student infected is in the same fraternity as two members who had previously been diagnosed. Two of the three students live in the fraternity house. 

The Indiana State Department of Health said the cases are not widespread enough to issue a campus-wide clinic. 

The university is encouraging students to make sure they get two doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine.
