College officials are reporting that five cases of mumps have been connected to SUNY New Paltz's swimming program, according to ABC 7.

The university announced the outbreak in a statement on Thursday, Oct. 27, and canceled swim practices and workouts until Friday, Nov. 4, said ABC 7.

The swim team also canceled two meets to prevent any possible contamination until the university is sure additional cases don't surface, added ABC 7.

A serious illness, mumps is caused by a respiratory virus, that typically causes swelling of the salivary glands near the ears, said ABC 7.

Mumps is spread through close contact with an infected person, or by sharing drinks, eating utensils, or through saliva, reported ABC 7.

To contact the school for information, call 845-257-3910, said ABC 7.
