Measles Outbreak in Orange County, California

Orange County has had 21 cases of measles diagnosed in 2014. Measles symptoms can occur up to 3 weeks after being exposed to a known measles case starting with a fever, as high as 105 ° F, with fatigue, cough, runny nose and red watery eyes. Two-four days later the measles rash is seen beginning around the ears and hairline and spreading down to cover the face, trunk and extremities. If you suspect you might have measles, stay home and wear a mask to protect other household members and call the student health center or your doctor about your symptoms. It is spread very easily by air and by direct contact with an infected person and is contagious from approximately 4 days before the rash appears through 4 days after the rash is seen. If you have not had measles or the vaccine, come to the student health clinic to talk about receiving a MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination.
