In Florida, the number of reported mumps cases has remained relatively low over the past five years but started to increase in 2015 with ten cases and in 2016 with 16 cases. The last time the number of reported cases reached 2017 levels was in the 1990s.

Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by a virus, but it can be prevented by a vaccine given routinely to children.
