SEATTLE, Wash. -

King County public health officials have confirmed a measles infection in an adult international traveler who was in the county during the contagious period.

Before receiving the measles diagnosis, the traveler was in the following public locations. Anyone who was at the following locations during the times listed was possibly exposed to measles:

January 25, 2015

-8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Sheraton Hotel (common areas), 1400 6th Ave, Seattle

-9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. SeaTac Airport, Main Terminal and Concourse D

If you were at the locations at the times listed above and are not immune to measles, the most likely time you would become sick is between February 1 and February 15.

Most people in our area have immunity to the measles through vaccination, but people should check the exposure locations, know their immunization status and call a health care provider promptly if they develop an illness with fever or illness with an unexplained rash between February 1 and February 15.

Measles is a highly contagious and potentially severe disease that causes fever, rash, cough, and red, watery eyes. It is mainly spread through the air after a person with measles coughs or sneezes.

For help finding low cost health services, call the Family Health Hotline at 1-800-322-2588.
