King County measles case confirmed

Metro

SEATTLE, Wash. – Health officials say they’ve confirmed a measles infection in a child who visited a public location recently in King County while contagious.

The health department says, however, that the risk to the public is slim, because most King County residents have been vaccinated and outdoor exposure locations lower the risk of measles being transferred.

But anyone who visited Aladdin Gyro-cery on University Way Northeast in Seattle on August 18 should check to see if they have been vaccinated and call a physician if they develop symptoms, such as a fever or unexplained rash, between now and September 8th.
