Possible measles exposure at Dulles
Loudoun County health officials said people at Dulles International Airport on Feb. 20 may have been exposed to a person with measles.
Officials said people who were in the International Arrivals and Baggage Claim level of the main terminal from 3:15 to 7:15 p.m. that day may have been exposed. Officials are contacting people on a plane who were at risk.
The Associated Press reported that a measles-infected New Mexico woman arrived at Dulles from London and, two days later, departed from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport near Baltimore on evening flights to Denver and Albuquerque, N.M. Once home in Santa Fe, N.M., the traveler became sick and was diagnosed with measles.
Officials recommend that anyone with symptoms of measles, which include a fever greater than 101 degrees, call a health-care provider to discuss care before going to a doctor’s office or hospital.
