Mumps Prevention and Control in Healthcare Settings
Most mumps transmission likely occurs before parotitis onset and within the subsequent 5 days. Patients should be isolated for 5 days following onset of parotitis. In healthcare settings, both standard and droplet precautions with respiratory etiquette apply during the 5 day period of isolation. For additional information, see CDC’s MMWR, Updated Recommendations for Isolation of Persons with Mumps.
