OLYMPIA, Wash. -

A person with measles traveled to Sea-Tac airport and visited public areas in King and Snohomish counties while contagious. The Washington State Department of Health says the risk to the public is low except for people who are not vaccinated. Most people in the state are immune to measles.

Health officials say an out-of-state unimmunized woman in her 20s became contagious in December after visiting Disneyland in Southern California. She then flew from Orange County, California, to Sea-Tac Airport on December 29 and flew out of Sea-Tac on Jan. 3. She stayed with family in Snohomish County.

Anyone who was in one of the following locations during the indicated times may have been exposed to measles:

King County:

12/29-12/30/2014 at Sea-Tac Airport

10:30pm on 12/29 to 2:00am on 12/30, Main terminal baggage claim 

12:00am to 2:45am on 12/30, Sea-Tac Rental Car Facility

1/3/2015 at Sea-Tac Airport

5:30am to 7:30am, Sea-Tac Rental Car Facility 

12/30/2014, 1:00am-3:00am at Dicks Drive-In, 115 Broadway Ave. East, Seattle, WA 98102

Snohomish County

12/30/14, 1:00pm-7:00pm at Bethany at Pacific (Elevator, 3rd-5th floors), 916 Pacific Avenue, Everett, WA 98201

12/30/14, 8:00pm-12:00am at Anthony's Home Port in Edmonds, 456 Admiral Way, Edmonds WA

1/1/15, 2:45pm-6:30pm at Swedish Edmonds Emergency Room, 21601 76th Avenue W., Edmonds, WA 98026

If you were in any of those places at the listed times, who doesn't know whether they are immune or vaccinated should consult a health care professional immediately. Anyone who develops illness with fever or unexplained rash should also consult a health care professional as soon as possible and are urged to call ahead so other people in the waiting room are not exposed.
