A 20-month-old boy from Solana Beach has been diagnosed with measles, according to County health officials. The child had not been vaccinated.
If you or your child visited any of these locations, watch for symptoms and visit your health care provider, said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H.:
Measles is spread easily by coughing, sneezing or coming in close contact with an infected person.
"It's important to remember that the measles is spread through the air and may stay suspended in the air for up to two hours after it is released into the environment," said Wooten. "Currently, there is no longer a risk of contracting measles by visiting any of the above locations because of this exposure."
Measles causes a rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and watery eyes, usually lasting one to two weeks.
