wash hands often or use hand sanitizer do not share drinking glasses or eating utensils cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve Public health officials are investigating 120 cases of mumps across Nova Scotia, as of today, April 20. The outbreak continues in the Halifax Regional Municipality with sporadic cases in several other areas. The majority of cases remain in the 20-25 age group. “The increase in numbers is expected, especially with doctors looking more closely for mumps and more people becoming informed about symptoms,” said Dr. Shelly Sarwal, medical officer of health. The most common symptoms of mumps include fever, head and muscle aches, and swollen and tender glands at the angle of the jaw. Public health officials continue to encourage people to see their family doctor if they have symptoms. Mumps is spread by contact such as coughing, sneezing, sharing drinks and kissing. The virus can be spread for about seven days before symptoms appear, and up to nine days after. Dr. Sarwal stressed the importance of not going to school, work, any public places or participating in social activities during this period. All physicians are legally required to report cases of mumps to the local public health office to ensure public health officials are aware of cases and can follow up to see who else may have been exposed or infected.

GUEST ANALYST: Mark Gubicza, a broadcaster for the Angels and a former World Series champion during his 14-year career as a big league pitcher, has been the Southern California News Group’s guest analyst during the World Series.GAME 7 PITCHING MATCHUP: Yu Darvish vs. Lance McCullers: ”With Darvish, I look back at Game 3 and I don’t know if he was tipping his pitches or something with his arm angle. His slider was flat and his fastball command wasn’t good, but it seemed like they had a pretty good idea where he was going. There was a conversation about him tipping before going to the Dodgers. The way they’re reacting (to his pitches), I feel they were seeing something. That’s easily remedied. All you have to do is look at the tapes. … With McCullers, he throws a high percentage of curveballs, but for me, he’s going to have to throw his fastball more. It’s going to be hard to control your emotions in a Game 7, and you can overthrow your curveball, and that can lead to some mistakes and very hittable pitches.”WORTH WATCHING: “You can almost guarantee (Clayton) Kershaw is going to be in the game, and (Dallas) Keuchel too. When you look at Kershaw’s competitiveness, even if he’s not overly strong, that could work to his benefit. He’s not going to try to overpower hitters. He’ll get hitters to swing at pitches out of the strike zone.”X FACTOR: “Being in a couple Game 7’s (with the Kansas City Royals) in 1985, there are always a few guys on the team that keep you under control. George Brett and Hal McRae did it for us. Carlos Beltran, even if he’s not playing for the Astros, will help them relax. On the Dodgers side, there are a lot of guys that are young and energetic. I have seen a lot of emotion from that Dodgers team. If you are looking for one guy to keep them under control, I think Kershaw will be the guy.” Video: Dodgers Game 7 previewRelated Articles WATCH: Joc Jack!
