Possible measles exposure at Newark airport

Possible measles exposure at Newark airport

- Health officials in New Jersey are warning anyone who was at Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday, March 12, 2018, about possible exposure to measles, a highly contagious disease.

According to a statement from the Department of Health and Human Services, an individual returned from traveling overseas March 6 and was contagious upon entering MI.

If you were at Newark Airport Monday between 12:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., you may have been exposed, according to the state's Department of Health. It can cause serious complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis (swelling of the brain). Any individuals identified as potentially exposed will be notified by their local health department.

"This case underscores the importance of following vaccine recommendations and being up-to-date on vaccines", said Dr. Eden Wells, MDHHS chief medical executive, in the statement.

Officials aren't sure what other sections of the airport the child may have been in.

Those who have not been vaccinated or have not had measles are particularly at risk. Successful prevention and control of measles requires high levels of immunity in all communities.

Between 2001 and 2012, there were just 60 cases on average reported each year. In 2017, there were 118, including two in MI. A second vaccine dose is given before the start of kindergarten. Measles vaccine, or other acceptable documentation of immunity to measles, is recommended for all persons travelling internationally.
