Measles Update

The province's medical lead for communicable diseases says public health officials have already done an investigation into who may be susceptible to measles after a Winnipeg woman was found to have the province's second travel-related, lab-confirmed case.
 
Dr. Richard Rusk says the woman visited three health-care locations in Winnipeg. He says at this point, none of the people they've contacted have shown symptoms.
 
"At this point we don't have anybody that is symptomatic. There is an incubation period though of seven to 21 days, so there's always a chance that someone could still become symptomatic. They would then be directly linked to her and we would already be aware of those people so it's much easier to contain."
 
Dr. Rusk says vaccinations are the most important way of preventing measles for the general population.
 
He also says there is the potential they could have missed someone.
