Measles Investigation

Placer County Public Health is urging anyone who has been exposed and believes they have symptoms of measles to call their health care provider prior to visiting the medical office to make a plan that avoids exposing others in the waiting room. People who believe they have symptoms of measles should not go directly to medical offices, urgent care centers, or emergency departments (unless experiencing a medical emergency) without calling in advance.

Anyone with questions about measles immunity or the measles vaccine should contact their primary care provider. Placer County Public Health does not provide testing for immunity.  Placer County Public Health is not currently providing MMR vaccine in response to this investigation, but may should it become necessary.

Placer County Public Health has a dedicated phone line for communicable disease and immunization inquiries.  Anyone who has questions about public exposures should call 530.889.7183.  The phone line is open daily.  Leave a message after hours.

Anyone with questions about measles infection or the measles vaccine should call their primary call provider or Placer County Public Health at 530.889.7183.
