Travelers who were at the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport earlier this month need to be aware they could have been exposed to the measles.
According to Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) officials, a traveler who passed through DFW May 15th to catch a connecting flight has tested positive for measles.
Other travelers may have been exposed in these areas:
- Terminal D customs area from 5:15 to 7:45 p.m.
- The Skylink tram from 5:45 to 8 p.m.
- Gate 8 in Terminal A from 6 to 10:50 p.m.
People who were in the areas above should watch for any symptoms of measles until June 5.
The greatest concern is for those who have not been vaccinated, pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals.
If individuals show signs of illness, the health department advises for those people to call their doctor’s office or health care facility first and inform the office that they might have measles to avoid exposing other people.
