Officials from the Texas Department of State Health Services posted a letter on Twitter that was sent Friday to parents and participants at the National Cheerleaders Association All-Star National Championship from February 23-26, warning them of possible exposure to the contagious viral illness.

A person at the National Cheerleaders Association All-Star National Championship had mumps, officials learned.

The department sent a letter to those who participated in the competition, which was February 23-25 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, to let them know that they or their children may have been exposed to the virus.

Van Deusen said the state's health department sent precautionary letters to people from 39 different states who attended the cheerleading competition.

Symptoms include swelling on one or both sides of the face, tenderness of the salivary glands in the cheek and jaw area, slight fever, headache, general aches and muscle pain.

India Supreme Court restores 'love jihad' marriage
An Indian woman at the centre of an inter-religious marriage row may now live with her husband, the Supreme Court has ruled. Whether it is right or wrong, or she (Hadiya) did not marry a right person, it is for the consenting individuals to decide.


Mumps, according to state health officials, is typically contracted through saliva and respiratory droplets created when a person with the virus coughs or sneezes.

Mumps is a contagious viral illness, according to the letter. The incubation time for symptoms to arise can take up to 25 days, but usually shows signs in 14 to 18 days. "Infected people without symptoms of mumps may still be able to transmit the virus". "People with mumps are infectious three days before to five days after swollen glands appear".

The CDC says the MMR vaccine is "very safe" and about 88 percent effective with two doses in your system. Anyone who is unsure of their children's vaccination status is encouraged by the TDSHS to contact their doctor. Many traveled from out-of-state.

While vaccination against mumps is the best protection against mumps infection, vaccinated individuals may still become infected.
