ISDH officials say that anyone who visited Cameron Memorial Hospital Urgent Care in Angola, or Holy Angels Catholic Church, San Miguel Grocery, or Walmart Supercenter in Sturgis, Michigan on March 31st should monitor themselves for symptoms until April 21st.

Symptoms include a fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or a runny nose. Two to four days later, a rash starts on the face and upper neck. If you believe that you have measles, you should isolate yourself by staying home and avoid all contact with unimmunized persons. Anyone who is unsure about their vaccination history should check with their healthcare provider or visit www.MyVaxIndiana.in.gov to access official immunization records as recorded in the Children and Hoosier Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP).

Seventeen people have been diagnosed with the contagious disease in the Vancouver area since February and two cases each were identified on Vancouver Island and in 100 Mile House, in the southern Cariboo region of B.C.

A measles case has been confirmed in Maryland, authorities said.

Starting in April, Northern Health will be distributing immunization consent packages, through schools, directly to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 who are not up to date with their vaccinations.

"Those who are uncertain of their childhood vaccination history can get a blood test to confirm they're protected, or get the MMR vaccine", Ryan said.

The statewide total of 39 measles cases is the highest since 65 cases were reported in 1991. Media outlets report on the outbreaks in the US, as well.

According to the World Health Organization, while deaths from measles have decreased significantly in recent years, the illness remains common, particularly in developing countries. Those in violation could be charged with a misdemeanour punishable by up to six months in jail.

During the investigation, officials found that while the patient was infectious, the patient was in MI and Texas.

Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little, liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health explains, "The Ocean County Health Department gained a lot of valuable information from the first outbreak of measles".
