Measles Case Confirmed, Possible Exposures In Baltimore Area

The following locations have been identified as possible locations for public exposure to the measles in Tehama, Shasta and Butte Counties.

March 29Congregation B'Nai Israel, 15400 W. 10 Mile Road, Oak Park, 5:30 - 8 p.m. April 2, 9 a.m.to noon: Queensway Carleton Hospital Skin and Tissue Clinic.

People who may have been exposed elsewhere were being notified directly, the Health Department said.

The HSE has warned that people who are sick should not attend settings such as crèche, school, work or religious gatherings until they have recovered from illness.

The early symptoms of the disease include fever, cough, or tiny white spots in the mouth.

A person can spread measles from four days before the onset of rash through four days after the rash begins. If you believe that you have measles, you should isolate yourself by staying home and avoid all contact with unimmunized persons.

A measles case has been confirmed in Maryland, authorities said. Three percent of cases had just one of the required two-part vaccine series, while 16% of cases were found to be fully vaccinated.

A county in New York City's northern suburbs, meanwhile, declared a state of emergency last week over a measles outbreak that has infected more than 150 people since last fall, hoping a ban against unvaccinated children in public places wakes their parents to the seriousness of the problem. Media outlets report on the outbreaks in the USA, as well.

"There is a risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after contact with a case of measles". Rockland's outbreak has most heavily affected Orthodox Jewish communities, in which vaccination rates tend to be lower. At least 27 of the cases had incomplete or unknown vaccination history. Those in violation could be charged with a misdemeanour punishable by up to six months in jail. Officials say the patient is a resident of LaGrange County, but is no longer infectious.

The best protection against contracting the virus is through vaccination.

Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little, liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health explains, "The Ocean County Health Department gained a lot of valuable information from the first outbreak of measles".
