A case of measles has been diagnosed in an unvaccinated Wake County resident who became ill after traveling internationally. Onset of rash was on June 10th and measles was confirmed by laboratory testing at the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health on Saturday, June 16th. Read the public health division’s clinician guidance memo.

The patient sought care at multiple healthcare sites during June 8–14 while infectious; details are available at the Wake County website. While every effort is being made to identify persons who were exposed, it is possible that additional cases could occur among unrecognized contacts at these or other locations.
