March 14, 2019

OAK PARK, Mich. (AP) — Michigan health officials have confirmed a travel-related case of measles involving a person visiting from Israel.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Oakland County Health Division say people may have been exposed this month at several places in the Detroit suburbs of Oak Park and Southfield , including a synagogue, Jewish educational institutions, convenience stores and a pizza restaurant.

Officials say the person with measles had stayed in New York, where there’s a measles outbreak.

Measles typically will start with a high fever, red eyes, runny nose, sensitivity to light, and eventually rashes on the face and head move to other parts of the body.

Michigan health officials last year urged people to get vaccinated and take other precautions after confirming several measles cases in the state .
