Children in New Hampshire diagnosed with measles



Public health officials say a child has been diagnosed with measles in New Hampshire and may have exposed others to infection in three locations in Keene last week. The Department of Health and Human Services said the child was in the kindergarten at the United Church of Christ Sunday, May 12, and at a coffee gathering in the church. The child was also in the infant and toddler room at Keene Montessori School on Thursday and at the entrance clinic at the Cheshire Medical Center that afternoon. Anyone who was in these places should undergo their vaccination or immunity status and those who are not immune may need immediate vaccination health officials said last week that this year's measles count has exceeded 800, the highest tally in 25 year. Measles are caused by a virus that is transmitted from person to person through the air when a person with the disease sneezes, coughs or speaks. The virus may remain infectious in the air for up to two hours after an infected person leaves the area. It is very easy for people who have not received the measles vaccine to contract from another person. The incubation period for measles from the time of exposure is seven to 21

days, typically two weeks. Symptoms of measles infection usually begin with high fever, coughing, runny nose and conjunctivitis several days before the development of a rash.
