Cheerleaders warned about mumps exposure after national competition

09 March 2018

This letter is to inform you that you or your child may have been exposed to a person with mumps at the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) All-Star National Championship on February 23 to February 25, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

Health officials learned that someone with the illness had attended the championships, which ran from February 23 to 25, and sent a letter warning about possible exposure.

That's according to reports from Dallas' WFAA and the Washington Post, which said Wednesday that the Department of State Health Services has issued a letter indicating that an out-of-state competitor had the viral illness during the event. Anyone who was present during that time may have been exposed, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) said in a letter. Symptoms include swollen or tender salivary glands or testicles, low-grade fever, fatigue and muscle aches.
