A possible mumps outbreak among several inmates at New Jersey's Bergen County jail has led to a lockdown of the facility, meaning not even unvaccinated guards are permitted to enter or leave the premises, the county executive tells News 4.

Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said Tuesday that the mumps diagnosis comes from a doctor's clinical observation; officials are awaiting test results to confirm that doctor's belief.

In the meantime, there is a "nobody in, nobody out" policy for anyone who has not had the MMR shot, which is the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella.
