SECOND CASE OF MEASLES REPORTED IN KINGSTON
4/21/2017 8:28:21 AM
A second case of measles has been reported in Kingston. A report from KFL&A Public Health says this case is linked to the same case where an individual contracted the disease abroad. The current infected individual had never received measles vaccines in their childhood. Public Health says the possibility of transmission is very low, but those who are not immunized may be at risk. The more recent case visited a local restaurant, Carmelinda's on Princess Street April 16 between 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Any at-risk people who visited this restaurant during that time period may have been exposed to measles. KFL&A Public Health ask these individuals to call the Communicable Disease Team for advice and guidance.
