The mumps are causing problems in three colleges in our state.
The University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth and now James Madison say they've had a few infections. The disease is rare, but also very contagious.
We spoke with a doctor who says this isn't a cause for widespread concern.
"Even if we fully vaccinate everybody you're still not going to have 100 percent immunity, so you're going to have these low pockets here and there where the cases are going to pop up. The main thing is to contain the infections," said Dr. Muddasar Chaudry, an expert in infectious diseases with LewisGale Hospital.
Each university says they've handled the infections and have asked students to take precautions to keep it from spreading.
