Toronto Public Health investigating a confirmed case of measles

Toronto Public Health (TPH) is investigating a lab-confirmed case of measles in an adult resident who acquired the infection in another country. Individuals are reminded that the measles virus is circulating in many countries and that they should check to ensure they are protected against measles before travelling. 

The public may have been exposed to the measles virus in the following setting: 

March 20 at Vaughan Mills, 1 Bass Pro Mills Dr., Vaughan, Ontario, between 4 p.m. and 
10 p.m. 

Measles is a highly contagious disease that spreads easily to those who are susceptible. Anyone who has not had two doses of a measles vaccine (MMR or MMRV) or who has not had measles in the past, is at risk of infection. Infants under one year of age, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems can get very ill with measles. 

TPH is following up on all known contacts who may have been exposed to the measles virus.

All people who may have been exposed are advised to do the following: 

1. Check your immunization record to make sure you and your family members are up-to-date with the measles vaccination (MMR or MMRV). If you are unsure, please check with your health care provider. In general, those born before 1970 are considered protected against measles. 

2. Even if you are up-to-date with your measles vaccination, watch for symptoms of measles. These include a high fever, cold-like symptoms (cough/runny nose), sore eyes or sensitivity to light and a red rash lasting four to seven days. 

3. If you have not had two doses of measles vaccine and you were born after 1970, a dose of vaccine is recommended to prevent the infection. This is only effective if given within three days of the exposure. 

4. Infants under one year of age, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems can get very ill with measles. 

These individuals are encouraged to call the TPH hotline at 416-338-7600 or 311 after hours to discuss follow-up recommendations.
