Symptoms of measles include a fever of 101 degrees or higher, a cough, a runny nose and red eyes with or without rash.

People who believe they may have been infected should NOT go to their doctor’s office or an emergency room. People infected with measles risk infecting other people in the doctor’s offices and emergencies, which could be especially harmful to people who are sick with other diseases.

Measles is a highly contagious and respiratory disease that can cause severe health complications such as pneumonia, encephalitis and even death. Measles is transmitted by contact with infected persons through coughing or sneezing, and the measles virus can remain active in the air and on surfaces for up to two hours.

“This case in Illinois is a reminder of the importance of immunizations. With only 10 cases reported in Illinois over the past five years, many parents may not have experienced the severe illness that can be caused by measles. Immunizations are vital to protect not only each child, but the community as a whole.”

— Nirav Shah, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health

Measles vaccination is considered highly effective at preventing measles infection and is required for all Illinois school children.

At present, there is no identified link between this local measles case and the multistate outbreak of measles associated with Disneyland.
