Mumps Causes Quarantine of Over 2,200 Immigrant Detainees

More than 2,200 people exposed to a mumps outbreak in two U.S. immigrant detention facilities have been quarantined, federal officials say.

The 25-day quarantine began March 7 at facilities in Pine Prairie, Louisiana, and Aurora, Colorado, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

In the past year, 236 detainees have had confirmed or probable cases of mumps in 51 facilities, a spokesperson said. There were no reported cases of mumps between 2016 and 2018 at any ICE facilities.

In 2016, a measles outbreak at an immigrant detention center in Eloy, Arizona, contributed to a statewide outbreak after some workers refused to get vaccinated, the AP reported.
