MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Officials say the students who were diagnosed with the mumps at St. Anselm College in Manchester have been cleared to return to school.

The New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services says it confirmed two cases in a lab and identified three other probable cases.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TUlCv4 ) that of the five suspected cases, three students tested positive for the mumps and two others tested negative.

All of the cases involved members of the men’s hockey team and all had received prior vaccinations. No other mumps cases have been diagnosed at the school.

Maine health officials are investigating whether there’s a link between a mumps case at the University of Southern Maine and the recent outbreak at St. Anselm College.
