Measels Confirmed In Hennepin County

A new case of measles has been confirmed in Hennepin County. The Minnesota Department of Health says a five-year-old child became ill shortly after returning from international travel to a region where measles is common. Last year, Minnesota experienced its largest measles outbreak since 1991, with 75 cases identified between April and August 2017. If you see symptoms of measles, the experts say call your doctor or clinic right away. Health officials say that if additional cases were to develop as a result of this case, they would likely occur between now and August 28th.
