Penn State and state Department of Health officials are warning students that three people on campus may have the mumps.

WJAC-TV (http://bit.ly/1KVYXVB ) is reporting the university issued the health warning Monday. Students, faculty and staff are being asked to check with their doctors whether they've been properly vaccinated for the mumps, measles and rubella.

The school isn't identifying those who may be sick, but says "the potential cases identified are in individuals who do not reside in the residence halls."

Still, the school is recommending that students avoid sharing food or drinks — or "engaging in drinking games, or other activities that may result in salivary exposure."
