Hundreds of people who visited UC Davis Health in Sacramento, California, on March 17 have been notified that they may have been exposed to measles, according to CNN.
“You will need to notify your primary health care provider(s) and your child’s provider(s) of this possible exposure to discuss your possible risk of infection, vaccination history, and other questions you may have,” a letter mailed to 200 patients on March 25 and 26 said.
They also said that people who may have been in the waiting room on that day should speak with their doctors.
According to Wikipedia, “Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease caused by the measles virus. Symptoms usually develop 10–12 days after exposure to an infected person and last 7–10 days.
