  • Mumps outbreak sickens detained migrants in N.M.

    A mumps outbreak that has swept through the country has sickened migrants in at least one detention center in New Mexico, prompting officials to enact three quarantines since the beginning of the year.

    The Centers for Disease Control released a report Thursday detailing mumps outbreaks among immigrants in detention centers across the U.S. Since 2015, this is the first report of mumps outbreaks in detention facilities.

    From Sept. 1, 2018, through Aug. 22, 898 confirmed and probable mumps cases in adult migrants detained in 57 facilities, which was 18% of the 315 U.S. facilities that house ICE detainees, were reported in 19 states. An additional 33 cases were reported among staff members.

    The New Mexico Department of Health has taken reports of 18 mumps cases at one detention center, according to Mari Anixter, health department spokeswoman. “…although some of these cases may have contracted mumps outside of the facility,” Anixter said in an email.

    A legal organization based in Albuquerque that provides assistance to immigrants said the Cibola Detention Center, located in the central region of the state, is the center that has reported the mumps cases.

  • Bobby McFerrin concert set for Sept. 5 at SF Opera

    Bobby McFerrin, winner of 10 Grammys and creator of the global hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Santa Fe Opera.

    The concert is a benefit for the Partners in Education Foundation for the Santa Fe Public Schools. 

    McFerrin was recently honored as one of the 2020 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters. He continues to explore unchartered musical territory and connect people through music, including jazz, pop, R&B, classical and world music with his new group Gimme5, four virtuosic vocal improvisers.

    Gimme5 is based on circle singing, a musical practice and philosophy that McFerrin has honed since he began as a solo a capella performer, assigning vocal parts to his fans and transforming sold-out houses into impromptu choirs.

    Up to 40 Santa Fe choral students from Santa Fe and Capital high schools, Ortiz Middle School and Nina Otero Community School will participate in the concert. These Santa Fe Public Schools students will sing along on a few improvisational songs with McFerrin and his group.
