Three cases of measles reported in the Lower Mainland

Three cases of measles have been reported by Vancouver Coastal Health Authority in June. Measles is now rare in Canada, but unimmunized people are at risk.  Measles is very contagious and spreads easily.  When an infected person breathes, coughs, or sneezes, the virus spreads through the air.  Measles starts with a cough, cold-like symptoms, red eyes, and a fever, which are followed by a rash.  People with measles are infectious before they develop the classical rash and can spread measles before knowing they have been infected.
