Health alert: Measles case in Lane County


Alerta de salud: leer en español
Testing has confirmed two new measles cases in Oregon, one of whom resides in Lane County. On Saturday,  October 12, 2019, both individuals traveled on the same flight into Portland International Airport as a confirmed measles case. 


Measles, also known as rubeola, is a potentially severe viral infection. 

People are considered immune to measles if any of the following are true:

  • You are a pre-school age child with one measles vaccine (MMR - measles mumps, rubella).
  • You are a school-age child (K-12) or adult who has had two measles vaccines (MMR - measles, mumps, rubella).
  • You were born before 1957.
  • You have had measles disease (diagnosed by a health care provider and confirmed with a lab test).
  • You have had a blood test that shows you are immune to measles.

It is extremely important that anyone who shows symptoms of measles seeks medical advice before going to an emergency department, doctor's office, or urgent care. 

For more information on possible exposure sites/times and the symptoms of measles, please see this article.
