    Public Health – Seattle & King County is investigating a new confirmed measles case in a child, with possible exposures ON 11/5/2020 10:00 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. Sea-Tac Airport, North Satellite (Gate N-11) to Baggage Claim (Carousel 13)

    Transmission of measles can occur before people know they have the disease, before any rash appears. Before the measles diagnosis was made.

    WHAT TO DO IF YOU WERE IN A LOCATION OF POTENTIAL MEASLES EXPOSURE.

    Most people in our area have immunity to the measles through vaccination, so the risk to the general public is low. However, anyone who was in the locations of potential exposure to measles, (CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE), around the time the child was there should:

    Find out if you have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles previously. Make sure you are up-to-date with the recommended number of measles (MMR) vaccinations.
    Call a healthcare provider promptly if you develop an illness with fever or illness with an unexplained rash. To avoid possibly spreading measles to others, do not go to a clinic or hospital without calling first to tell them you want to be evaluated for measles.

    Vaccination or medication can be given after exposure in some cases to prevent illness – check with your healthcare provider. This is especially important for people at high risk for measles complications.
