Public health officials have released details of a Whatcom County resident who was contagious with measles while traveling to events in King and Pierce counties, including a concert at KeyArena in Seattle over the weekend.
Officials say the woman in her 20s became contagious with measles March 26 after visiting a local family with measles linked to an outbreak in British Columbia.
You may have been exposed to measles if you were at these locations listed on the state public health website:
Anyone who was in those locations at the listed times should find out if they have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles previously. People who are unvaccinated, aren’t sure if they’re immune, and develop an illness with fever or unexplained rash should consult a health care professional immediately. Public health officials urge them to call ahead to their clinic, doctor’s office, or emergency room before arriving so people in waiting rooms aren’t exposed.
