The statement included locations where the person may have exposed others to measles: Dulles International Airport in international arrivals and baggage claim from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. on May 15; Nordstrom Rack at 15760 Shady Grove Rd. in Gaithersburg from 3 to 6 p.m. on May 17; and the Circuit Court of Maryland, 50 Maryland Ave., Hearing Room 2K, Second Floor, South Tower in Rockville, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 18.
Measles, with symptoms including a fever higher than 101 degrees and a rash, is highly contagious, officials said. Symptoms may develop up to 21 days after exposure. Those who have received a dose of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine are unlikely to get the illness. Maryland officials warned of a case of measles exposure last year.
Those who think they have been exposed may call the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services’ Disease Control Office at 240-777-1755, officials said. Calls after hours or on the weekend can be directed to the county’s crisis center at 240-777-4000.
