Local health officials have learned of a case of measles in an unimmunized infant who recently visited overseas. The child passed briefly through the Portland International Airport Monday evening, March 24, 2014 and was subsequently diagnosed at a local primary care clinic. Measles is a highly contagious and potentially serious illness caused by a virus. It is spread through the air after a person who is sick with measles coughs or sneezes. Because most people in our area have been vaccinated against measles, the risk to the general public and to anyone exposed at the airport is low.
