The Jessamine County Health Department (JCHD) has received report of a laboratory-confirmed measles case in Jessamine County. Public health officials recommend unvaccinated individuals twelve (12) months and older receive a measles vaccination to protect themselves and those around them.
People who attended services in Hughes Auditorium at Asbury University on Saturday, February 18 may have been exposed to measles.
Health officials urge anyone who may have been exposed to check their immunization records and confirm they are protected against measles. Kentucky residents can access their immunization records through the Kentucky Immunization Registry Public Portal at https://www.chfs.ky.gov/KDPHMyVaxRecord
“Measles is an acute, highly contagious viral disease which can spread quickly in high risk, unvaccinated populations,” says Dr. Steve Davis, JCHD Medical Director. Symptoms include fever; runny nose; cough; and red, watery eyes; often followed by a rash 3-5 days later. Although measles is usually considered a childhood disease, it can be contracted at any age.
Anyone who has been exposed and has not been adequately immunized against measles is being urged to quarantine for twenty-one (21) days following exposure, per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Immediately contact your healthcare provider at the first sign of symptoms.
JCHD will continue to receive guidance from the Kentucky Department for Public Health and the CDC to ensure proper precautions are taking place to mitigate further spread. The Health Department is working with University health officials to coordinate a measles vaccine clinic next week. More information will be released as details are finalized.
