Dulles International Airport Latest To Suffer Measles Warning”

MANASSAS - (Press Release) Out of an abundance of caution, Health Districts in Northern Virginia are informing people who were at various locations listed below during the specified time frames, that they may have been exposed to a person with measles.

If symptoms develop, Ms. Andrew-Spear said people should stay at home and isolate themselves from others and call a health care provider or department. There have been 971 reported cases of measles in the first five months of 2019 in the United States, the greatest number since 1992, when 2,126 cases were reported for the entire year.

Especially if you were at Dulles International Airport on June 2, 2019.

They're especially warning those who were at Dulles International Airport's Terminal A and baggage claim from 5:30 p.m.to 8:30 p.m. June 2 that they might have been exposed.

Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, 3600 Joseph Siewick Drive, Fairfax, VA in the emergency department, including the waiting area, on Tuesday, June 4, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. It can linger in the air for up to two hours.

"Measles is a highly contagious, potentially life-threatening infection that is preventable using vaccination", said David Priest, Novant Health's chief safety and quality officer.

The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) has confirmed one additional case of measles in a local resident reporting global travel.

In his statement, Azar noted that the CDC has implemented an internal management structure to respond to the outbreaks, created toolkits to address vaccine hesitancy, and reached out to rabbinical and other associations with credible vaccine information. A rash appears three to seven days later, appearing first on the face and spreading to the rest of the body.

"I'm a parent - I understand that concern - but again, the message really is around if you have actually come into direct contact with a case of measles you would know that because we would have contacted you, public health would have contacted you", said Russell.

Ms. Andrew-Spear said those who might have been exposed but only had one dose of the MMR vaccine should contact their health care providers about getting a second vaccine dose. The agency also urged people with symptoms to call ahead to alert the staff that they could be infected with measles.
