UPDATED: Wednesday March 19, 2014 3:11 PM

The number of mumps cases at Ohio State University has grown once again.

This time the number of cases has climbed by four, for a new total of 32.

There is no one currently in the hospital, but the ages of those affected range from 18 to 48 years old.

19 male and 13 female students are currently infected.

There is a concern that these numbers could continue to increase. Doctors say if and when new cases pop up, they will be ready.

The university and city health department are putting out an awareness blitz to educate students and the general public about Mumps.  

Volunteers are putting up flyers with basic hygiene and infection control tips in dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and off-campus housing.
