NYS Health Department Warns of Measles Exposure

The New York State Department of Health warned Friday of a potential measles exposure risk in our area. An Australian tourist with the measles visited hotels in the city, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Watchtower Educational Center in Putnam, and a hotel and health centers in Orange County a week ago. The health department made the warning though the risk of developing measles is very low, especially for people who’ve been immunized. Officials say the tourist was at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Goshen, Excel Urgent Care in Goshen and the Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown. If you haven’t been immunized, and you were in those areas and are showing measles symptoms, including fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or runny nose, health officials ask you to contact your health care provider, a local clinic, or a local emergency department before going for care. Measles is a highly contagious viral respiratory disease.
