The outbreak, connected to D’Jais Bar in Belmar, spread to at least one victim in Gloucester County, according to the report.
Woodbury-based Inspira Medical Center reported the possibility of two cases, but only one yielded positive test results, and that person had a connection to the Monmouth County bar, according to the report.
The mumps outbreak has a presence in various towns in six counties in New
Jersey, as well as a town in Florida.
The bar voluntarily closed while the Health Department inspected the facility and employees were vaccinated.
People who were vaccinated with the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) shot at infancy and again between the ages of 4 and 6 years old are 90 percent less likely to contract the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Symptoms include swelling of salivary glands, fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and loss of appetite.
Mumps is spread via saliva and mucus from the mouth, nose and throat, and transmission takes place within five days after swelling begins.
More information about mumps is available from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website at http://www.cdc.gov/mumps/index.html.
