According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) measles is a highly contagious virus that lives in the nose and throat and can spread to others through coughing and sneezing.

The CDC has found that Measles is so contagious that 90% of people who are not immune and have contact with the affected person will also become infected. Measles was declared eliminated by the CDC back in 2000 due to a highly successful vaccination process in the United States.

In MInnesota as of 5/3/17 the Minnesota Department of Health has confirmed 34 cases of Measles in the state 32 of which were in Hennepin County, 1 in Crow Wing County and 1 in Ramsey County.

  • If you think your child has been exposed to measles: Watch for Fever, cough, runny nose, watery eyes. Then a rash will develop starting at the head and then through the rest of your body.
  • If your child has these symptoms call your Doctor, or Clinic right away.
