Maryland state health officials are advising the public of a possible measles exposure in Baltimore County after authorities confirmed a measles case.
The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) says anyone who visited 4000 Old Court Road in Pikesville, MD on Tuesday, April 2 in Baltimore County that they may have been exposed to measles. Possible exposure times were from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day. Individuals who may have been exposed at additional locations are being notified directly.
There was one confirmed measles case reported in Maryland in 2018, which was a travel-related case imported from the country of Georgia.
People, especially those who are not vaccinated against measles, who were at 4000 Old Court Rd should monitor themselves for any early symptoms of measles, especially fever. People who develop a fever or other symptoms of measles should contact their health care provider. Those with symptoms should not go to child care, school, work or out in public, as they might have the early symptoms of measles and might be contagious. People with these symptoms should call their doctor about their symptoms before showing up in the waiting room so that the office can take measures to prevent spread to other patients.
