Measles A Health Emergency in 1 Washington County

Measles Outbreak: What You Need To Know About Disease Washington measles outbreak prompts warning to Idaho doctors

Clark County in Washington is just north of Portland, Oregon.

A state of emergency was declared in Washington's Clark County and at least one case has also been confirmed in OR, and it's not out of the question that the outbreak could travel north toward the Lower Mainland.

Officials with Southwest District Health in Caldwell, Idaho say so far no measles cases have been reported in Idaho as a result of the outbreak.

Although, no cases have yet been reported in B.C. related to the outbreak.

"Once it sets into a community, the likelihood of it getting beyond that community or more widespread within that community is high, especially when vaccination rates are low", Mou told CBS News.

Armstrong said Clark County Public Health will provide daily updates pertaining to the ongoing measles investigation. But the CDC confirmed that 349 people suffered from the measles in 26 states and Washington, DC, in 2018. The World Health Organization says that unvaccinated young children face the highest risk of measles and its complications, including death. State figures reveal that 7.9 percent had been exempted from the mandate that children entering kindergarten should have been vaccinated for the disease before being accepted. Travelers infected overseas can bring the virus into the country and spread it, causing periodic outbreaks. On the East coast, travelers brought the infection back from Israel, which had experienced a large outbreak.

The county released a list of public places where infected children visited, which included several schools and churches, the Portland, Oregon airport and a Costco.

Public health officials in Washington say people may have been exposed to the risky disease at more than three dozen locations, including Portland International Airport, a Portland Trail Blazers game, an Amazon locker location and stores such as Costco and IKEA.

To avoid infecting others, Clark County Public Health urges anyone who believes they may have been exposed to measles or are experiencing symptoms of the disease to call a health-care provider, to discuss being evaluated before going to a doctor. "That way they can get medical evaluation and they won't necessarily expose a lot of other people".

Most cases involve children aged 1 to 10. It's not like a cold for three days. "You feel miserable", he said.
