Public Officials in Clark County, Washington are investigating a measles outbreak after reports of 34 confirmed cases and nine suspected cases since the first of January. Of the 34 cases, thirty-two have been confirmed to be unimmunized, while four remain unverified. Only one case required hospitalization.
The Clark County Public Health urges, “People who believe they have symptoms of measles should not go directly to medical offices, urgent care centers or emergency departments (unless experiencing a medical emergency) without calling in advance” in order to prevent virus exposure in waiting rooms.
