OAK FOREST, Ill.
(AP) - Public health officials have confirmed a case of measles in a
northern Chicago suburb and say others may have been exposed.
The Cook County
Department of Public Health says the diagnosed person has a recent travel
history to another country that has ongoing measles transmission. The case
was confirmed Tuesday and the person is no longer infectious. However
officials say the person may have exposed others before realizing he or she
include fever, rash, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. Officials
issued a list of places in Chicago and the northern suburbs and said if you
have symptoms and were at one of the places on the list earlier this month
you should call your health care provider.
