In brief: Read belw please.
Mumps is spread by droplets of saliva or mucus from the mouth, nose, or throat of an infected person, usually when the person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
Items used by an infected person, such as soft drink cans or eating utensils, can also be contaminated with the virus, which may spread to others if those items are shared. In addition, the virus may spread when someone with mumps touches items.

Mumps is spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Mumps can spread before swollen glands appear and for 5 days afterward. Children with mumps spread it by mucus or droplets from the nose or throat onto the surfaces of items (e.g. Toys)
