The Department of Health says a person is unlikely to get measles if they were born before January 1st, 1957, have received two doses of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine, or have a lab test confirming immunity.
Measles symptoms include a fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or runny nose and usually appear 10 to 12 days after exposure.
The Department of Health urges anyone who lacks immunity who was in exposed areas to contact their health care provider. The Saratoga County and Warren County Health Departments have alerted area health care providers of the measles exposures and are working with the Hudson Headwaters to identify and contact anyone who may have been affected.
