ROCHESTER, NY (WROC-TV) - The New York State Department of Health is warning of a potential measles outbreak at several locations across the state. The warning was issued after an international traveler from Europe was confirmed to have the virus.

Anyone who visited the following locations may have been exposed:

  • Old Country Buffet, 821 Country Route 64, Elmira, NY on April 30th between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Ontario Travel Plaza on NYS Thruway (I-90) in Leroy, NY on April 30th between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
  • Sheraton Niagara Falls, 300 3rd Street, Niagara Falls, NY from 5:30 p.m. on April 30th to 9:30 a.m. on May 2nd
  • Niagara Falls Urgent Care, 3117 Military Road Suite 2, Niagara Falls, NY on May 1st between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
  • Exit 5 on Interstate 390 in Dansville, NY, on May 2nd between 9:30 a.m. and noon

The risk of developing measles is low for people who have been vaccinated or are immune.

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus that is spread by direct contact with nasal or throat secretions of infected people. People first develop a fever, then may have a cough, runny nose and watery eyes, followed by appearance of the rash.  People are considered infectious from four days before to four days after the appearance of the rash.

Symptoms usually appear 10-12 days after exposure but may appear as early as 7 days and as late as 21 days after exposure.  Individuals should contact their health care provider if they develop measles symptoms.

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
