Webinar: Mumps in U.S. Detention Facilities
August 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
NACCHO supports local health departments that are on the front lines of public health providing vaccination, responsible for disease surveillance, and prevention and control activities to reduce health risks of cases and outbreaks.
Since September 2018, there have been over 800 mumps cases in adult migrants detained in U.S. detention facilities, who are under the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Detention facilities should follow local or state health department guidance and recommendations for mumps outbreak management. Effective public health interventions in this setting require understanding of facility and custody operations, which often involve frequent transfers of detainees and multiple entities with authority for operations and detainee custody. For this, it is important for health departments and the facility to work together to develop appropriate interventions based on the local epidemiology and the specific needs of each facility.
On August 28 (2:00-3:00pm ET), this webinar will provide an overview from federal agencies regarding mumps cases and provide guidance to help health departments to respond more efficiently and help to stop outbreaks sooner. Participants will also learn about federal resources and receive guidance on frequently answered questions. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the current landscape regarding mumps outbreaks in U.S. detention facilities
- Improve their understanding of the complex operations for managing custody of people in detention facilities
- Describe differences in the role of different local, state, and federal partners when responding to outbreaks in detention facilities.
- Identify key principles for communicating with detention facilities
- Gain a better understanding of CDC guidance and resources available to assist with responding to mumps in detention facilities
