With the recent news that there are multiple confirmed cases of the Mumps virus here in Whistler, I thought it would be a good idea to get the facts before we rush to Dr Google. I’ve put the basic info that you would need to know here.
What are the mumps?
It’s an acute viral infection that results in swelling and tenderness of the parotid gland. The parotid gland is below your ear along the jaw line.
