Up to date information about public exposure locations is provided online by Public Health Seattle & King County. Healthcare providers should be vigilant for potential measles infections among persons who spent time in these locations at the dates/times listed or had recent international travel. The greatest risk of measles introduction into U.S. communities is through international travel to areas where outbreaks are occurring. According to the WHO and CDC, measles outbreaks can be found in every region of the world.
People infected with measles are considered infectious from four days prior to rash onset through four days after rash onset (total of nine days). Healthcare facilities should screen patients for possible symptoms or exposure to measles either at triage or when scheduling appointments to identify potentially infectious cases and promptly implement recommended infection control measures to prevent transmission to other patients and staff.
