Tourist with measles visited several popular Seattle attractions

Health officials say a man diagnosed with measles visited the Seattle area between April 21-28.

King County health officials issued a warning to residents late Saturday night after a man tested positive for measles. 

According to the King County Health Department, a man in his 40s from Canada, who traveled to Seattle in late April, has since been diagnosed and recovered from measles. 

Officials do not believe there is a connection between this case and the recent outbreak in Clark County -- which officials declared over at the end of April after six weeks with no new cases.
