A department news release issued Friday says anyone who visited 4000 Old Court Road in Pikesville in Baltimore County last Tuesday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. may have been exposed to measles.

March 26, 10 a.m.to 6 p.m.: 40 Hines Rd., in the lobby, elevator or ground floor.

The infected person was also at the Real Canadian Superstore at 760 Eagleson Rd. on March 28 and in the Ottawa West Travel Clinic at the same address.

It says the patient also visited three locations in Sturgis, Michigan, on March 31: Holy Angels Catholic Church, San Miguel Grocery and the Walmart Supercenter.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children get two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine - one between 12 and 15 months and the second between 4 and 6 years - to be fully protected against measles. However, other symptoms may include a fever, joint pain or nausea. The rash often starts on the face and neck, then spreads over the body.

Anyone showing symptoms of measles is being warned to stay at home and phone their GP.

"If they were born after 1970 and they think they only had one shot [as a baby, they should] make an appointment with their family physician, their health care provider, to get that second shot", she explained.

Measles is a serious illness and is highly infectious. Anyone who has not received two doses of MMR vaccine is at risk. After about five days, the rash fades in the same order in which it appeared.

The CDC reported on Monday 387 measles cases between January 1 and March 28, 2019.

"It's an attention grab, there's no question about it", Rockland County Executive Ed Day said at a news conference, noting that he didn't believe such a drastic step has ever been tried in the USA before.

Dr. Dee Hoyano with Island Health said it's not yet clear how the person contracted the disease, except that it did not involve worldwide travel.

"Last week, in an effort to contain an outbreak of measles that began in October, Rockland County, New York, banned unvaccinated people under age 18 from public places", CNN reported. Those in violation could be charged with a misdemeanour punishable by up to six months in jail.

During the investigation, officials found that while the patient was infectious, the patient was in MI and Texas.

"Measles is highly contagious and we are reminding residents that getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent from acquiring the virus", Orange County Health Commissioner Dr. Irina Gelman said.
