A suspected case of mumps has been reported at Calvin College near Grand Rapids.
As of Tuesday morning, the school was still waiting on lab results to confirm the case which was reported late last week.
In the meantime, the school is working with the Kent County Health Department to help mitigate potential exposure to the highly contagious illness.
Mumps is viral disease that is spread through mucus and saliva. It primarily affects the parotid glands on the sides of the face and can lead to painful swelling around the jaw.
