Oklahoma elementary school officials say a case of the mumps is confirmed; OSDH says lab results still out

FLETCHER, Okla. – Officials at an Oklahoma elementary school say they have had one confirmed case of the mumps, but OSDH officials say the lab results aren’t back yet to confirm.

Officials with the Oklahoma State Department of Health say they do have a report from the county and are actively investigating but test results won’t be back for another day or so and therefore can’t confirm or rule out mumps.

School officials at Fletcher Elementary in Fletcher, Oklahoma, say according to the doctor, the student was contagious during the week of September 16.

Parents are being asked to watch their children for any swelling or sore throats. Symptoms may show up two to four weeks after exposure.


School officials say wrong information about the student not being vaccinated is circulating.

The student was up-to-date on their vaccinations, according to school officials.
