A case of measles infection has been identified in the Lower Mainland.
Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health have determined that the infection was acquired abroad.
The individual used public transportation while they were infectious.
Public Health officials from both health authorities are alerting those who used the following services and locations on March 27, 2019 that they may have been exposed:
The 323 bus between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. and noon to 3 p.m.
The Expo line between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. and noon to 3 p.m.
Lobby and elevators at 666 Burrard Street in Vancouver and the Ascenda School of Management, at the same location, between 8:55 a.m. and 2:05 p.m.
If you were in these locations during the exposure period and you develop early symptoms of measles, please call your doctor’s office first and tell them that you think you may have measles so they can book you in at a time that will ensure you don’t expose others.
This will allow your doctor to take precautions to protect other patients.
This will bring the total number of measles infection cases in B.C. to 22 this year.
