See article from the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2018/03/07/thousands-of-cheerleaders-may-have-been-exposed-to-mumps-at-national-competition/?utm_term=.cb22d4f12c21

 

Note: the CDC recommends getting a third dose of mumps vaccine (for people who have completed a 2-dose regimen) after a potential exposure in an outbreak, especially in high-risk, extended contacts. For those that have not completed the regimen, another dose is still recommended.
