Cincinnati Airport Goers Exposed to Measles?

( – Ohio health officials came out on Monday stating that there is a possible Measles exposure after a person went through Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky International Airport. The exposure to Measles could have occurred for those who traveled through terminal A between 5 pm and 9 pm on January 27 and on January 29th from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm on January 29.

The agency spoke out saying, “ODH is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other state and local health officials to identify people who might have been exposed, including contacting potentially exposed passengers on specific flights.”

The warning is for cautionary reasons, according to health officials, after they were made aware of a child who contracted Measles on Saturday.

Symptoms of Measles that you should look out for include a fever of 101ºF or higher, runny nose, and watery red eyes. After 10 to 14 days a cough will usually appear. A rash may also appear on the face or body. Measles is described as a “childhood infection” and it can be very serious and even deadly, especially for young children.

This isn’t the first report we’ve seen of a Measles warning. In fact, health officials in Washington D.C. had a similar warning when they discovered that Dulles International Airport had a possible exposure to Measles as well as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Some health officials have said that they are worried that these Measles warnings will continue and get more frequent as many have opted out of vaccinating their children.
