In case you haven’t noticed the entry list for the Mid Ohio race this weekend, the name “EJ Viso” is included.
Of his former affliction, the Center for Disease Control says:
The mumps virus replicates in the upper respiratory tract and is spread through direct contact with respiratory secretions or saliva or through fomites.
The infectious period or time that an infected person can transmit mumps to a non-infected person is from 3 days before symptoms appear to about 9 days after the symptoms appear.
The incubation time, which is the period from when a person is exposed to virus to the onset of any symptoms, can vary from 16 to 18 days (range 12-25 days).
Which means that after having two weeks off the Indy Racing League’s newest driver to lay claim to the moniker of “Mr Excitement” is no longer under quarantine and is clear to race.
As a public service message for those who may find themselves working with or around Viso this weekend, please be careful since the CDC also notes that mumps can cause “inflammation of the testicles” or “deafness” – symptoms that the Panther Racing team would say Viso has already exhibited with his driving this year.
