Mumps prevention

A lady in wife's office has been diagnosed with mumps yesterday. I've read that mumps is infectious 3-4 days before symptoms show up. How can I ensure that my wife is not infected? Is there any preventive for post exposure?

She may be exposed already .But if she has been vaccinated against it in childhood then she may not get the disease.
