A Multnomah County and a Clackamas County resident have been diagnosed with the measles.
The two cases stem from an outbreak that began in Marion County, where two people have tested positive for measles. This outbreak is unrelated to a large outbreak that began in Clark County, Wash. in January.
The Clackamas County resident had previously visited a Salem missionary training school, Youth With a Mission, during the same time as an Illinois resident who was contagious with measles.
“The spread of this disease in Oregon is a sobering reminder of how this virus can travel,” said, Ann Thomas, MD, Public Health Physician at OHA. “So, if you haven’t already, make sure all adults and children in your household are up to date on vaccines.”
The Oregon residents visited the following locations while contagious with measles:
- Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center, Clackamas, Mar. 12, 11:45 p.m. through Mar. 13, 5 a.m.
- Revolution Foursquare Church, Portland, Mar. 16, 11 a.m.–1:30 p.m. and Mar. 17, 9:30 a.m.–2 p.m.
