March 22, 2019

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Health Authority says two new measles cases, one in Multnomah County and one in Clackamas County, have been linked to an outbreak in Marion County, raising the number of people diagnosed to four.

This measles outbreak is unrelated to the Vancouver-area outbreak that began in January.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the Clackamas County resident had visited a Salem missionary training school, Youth With a Mission, at the same time as an Illinois resident who was contagious with measles.

While contagious, the Oregon residents visited Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center in Clackamas on March 13; Revolution Foursquare Church in Portland on March 16 and 17; Von Ebert Brewing’s Glendoveer location in Portland on March 17, and Kaiser Rockwood Medical Center in Portland on March 19.

Ten people have been diagnosed with measles in Oregon since Jan. 1.
