Mumps Job-Aid Template for Providers

Communication with healthcare providers on appropriate testing procedures, including information on specimen type and timing of specimen collection, is critical to ensure best practices before and during an outbreak. Jurisdictions can use the provider job-aid below as a tool for communicating best testing practices to providers.

This job-aid is a template that health departments can modify to include

  • their contact information,
  • testing and shipping instructions, and
  • outbreak specific guidance.

Health departments can request a modifiable version of the job-aid by emailing the CDC Mumps Team. (Please include “Mumps Provider Job-Aid” in the subject line).

Appendix 1: Provider Job-Aid. Suspect mumps? Wait! This patient might not need to be tested if they are linked to another mumps patient or outbreak. Refer to outbreak guidance from Health Department Name to determine if this patient meets the criteria.
