Second local case of measles is confirmed

Maryland health officials said Tuesday a second case of measles was confirmed in a resident of the state this month.

Earlier this month, Maryland’s Department of Health reported a case of measles, saying anyone who might have been at an office building at 4000 Old Court Rd. in Pikes­ville between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on April 2 may have been exposed.

On Tuesday, the Department of Health said in a statement that a second case was confirmed in a Maryland resident who is a “household contact” of the first person infected.

Both got the illness outside of Maryland, according to the statement, and there is no evidence of further spread of the disease in the state.

Symptoms of measles include fever, runny nose and coughing, the statement said, and often appear up to 14 days after exposure.

Officials said anyone in need of a measles vaccine should contact their health-care provider or visit the health department’s website.

The cases among Maryland residents were reported as 90 new cases were reported in the second week of April nationwide.
