Individuals who attended or worked at any of the following York Region locations during the identified times listed below may have been exposed to measles:

596 Davis Drive, Town of Newmarket
Sunday, April 14 from 5:30 p.m. to Monday, April 15 at 5:45 a.m.

All people who may have been exposed are advised to immediately 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.  
  2. Even if you are up-to-date with your measles vaccination, watch for symptoms of measles until May 6, 2019.
  3. 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 York Region Public Health measles information line at 1-877-464-9675 ext. 77280.    

York Region Public Health and Southlake Regional Health Centre are working together to notify individuals who may have been exposed during the above dates and times.  

People who did not attend any of these locations during the above dates and times are not considered at risk for this measles exposure.

Measles is a highly contagious disease that can spread easily to those who are susceptible or unprotected. The best defense against measles is vaccination. This is a good reminder for residents to check their immunization history and talk to their health care provider about getting vaccinated.
   
“Symptoms of measles can include high fever, cough, runny nose, sore eyes or sensitivity to light, small spots in the mouth or throat and a red rash on the face or body” said Dr. Karim Kurji, York Region’s Medical Officer of Health. “Anyone showing symptoms of measles is advised to seek health care as soon as possible and should call the health care provider/facility in advance of visiting to advise the provider/facility of their possible exposure to the measles virus. It is important to identify measles early to help prevent its spread to other people.”
 
Calling the health care provider/facility in advance of your visit can help the provider/facility make arrangements to reduce the risk of transmitting measles to others.
