Second Case of Measles Confirmed in Kingston

KFL&A Public Health is investigating a second case of measles in Kingston.

Public Health say the adult was not immunized as a child, which is the key factor for contracting the highly infectious disease, and this is linked to another case reported a few weeks ago.

The possibility of other members of the public being exposed to or acquiring measles after exposure is very low if they have been vaccinated.

This adult visited a local restaurant, Carmelinda's on Princess Street, on Sunday, April 16, between 9:00 a.m. and noon, which means any at-risk people who visited this restaurant during that time period may have been exposed to measles.  

If you were also there at this time and are concerned about your health, you can call the Communicable Disease Team at KFL&A Public Health at 613-549-1232 for advice and guidance.
