Measles Confirmed in Nevada County
March 30, 2016
A school aged child who attends Yuba River Charter School has been confirmed to have measles. This is a highly contagious illness that can spread rapidly among unvaccinated individuals. According to the Nevada County Health Department, more cases are likely.
Key symptoms are a fever and rash. Other symptoms include cough, runny nose, and pink or red eyes.
If you think your child may have measles, please call your doctor or Yubadocs. To avoid exposing other people when you bring your child in to be seen, you and your child should remain in your car and call the receptionist from your car, rather than bringing your child into the lobby of the office. If possible, come at the end of the day.
People who have not been vacinated and come in contact with suspected measles can be vaccinated up to 72 hours after their exposure.
Call the Nevada County Health Department (530) 265-1450 or Yubadocs if you have questions.
