Attention: Measles Update

 

If you were in the Kroger Marketplace located at 885 Union Blvd, Englewood, Ohio on February 13 from 12:45 pm to 4:00 pm, you were exposed to measles, please fill out the Measles Contact Form.  Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County will then be in contact with you to discuss your exposure.

 

Measles is very contagious. People infected with measles can spread it to others, even before they have symptoms.  The measles virus can live for up to two hours in the air after an infected person leaves the room. Nine out of 10 unvaccinated children who are exposed to measles will become infected.  Symptoms may not occur for up to 21 days after exposure to an individual who has measles.

Symptoms of measles can include high fever, cough, runny nose, watery eyes, and a rash beginning 3-5 days after other symptoms occur.  Measles can be serious, and about 1 in 5 children who get measles will be hospitalized with complications such as pneumonia, dehydration, or brain swelling.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all children get two doses of MMR vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. MMR vaccine can also be given to adults, who are not vaccinated, or whose vaccination status is unknown.
