US : Johnson County logs rare case of measles

Article from The Kansas City Star, excerpt :

" The Johnson County Health Department is investigating the county’s first measles case in nearly six years.

The unidentified person, who had not been vaccinated against measles, became ill earlier this month, said Nancy Tausz of the Health Department.

Blue Valley North High School sent an email Wednesday to parents reporting that the case of measles was found at that school. The school was identifying students and staff members who hadn’t been vaccinated –— a small number –— and telling them to stay home until May 9."
