New Brunswick officials warn of exposure to second case of measles

Medical authorities in New Brunswick are cautioning anyone who may have been exposed to a second case of measles in the Saint John area to watch for symptoms and make sure they've been vaccinated.

Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province's chief medical officer of health, says the case was confirmed at Kennebecasis Valley High School in the last few days.

She did not give the age of the person or say if they are a student or staff member, but she noted the person was at the Saint John Regional Hospital in mid-April at the same time as a patient who was diagnosed with the first case of measles.

Health authorities are working with school district officials to contact anyone who may have been exposed to the latest person affected by the virus.

They say the person ate lunch at Shadow Lawn restaurant in Rothesay, N.B., on May 6 and attended the John Cleese show at Harbour Station on May 7.

People who were at the restaurant that day or who were at Harbour Station on May 7 seated in Section 26, rows 14-20 or Section 27, rows 14-24, are encouraged to contact their health provider.
