VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) – Clark County Public Health now has a list of 35 possible places of exposure for the measles, including health facilities, schools, churches and businesses.
The latest figures are 22 confirmed measles cases in young children and three suspected cases.
The places these patients visited now do what they can to prevent even more people from getting sick.
At PeaceHealth Urgent Care on Main Street in Vancouver, there are signs and a security guard. He is there to stop visitors under the age of 12, those who have not been vaccinated or who have compromised immune systems. They tell FOX 1
In addition to that, PeaceHealth says: "Patients who have been exposed to measles or experiencing measles symptoms should call their physician before considering a personal visit. This will allow the provider to develop a care plan for you not increases the risk to others. "
The Evergreen School District now has four schools on the exposure list, most recently Orchards Elementary. They ask anyone who has been exposed to the measles "not to attend any school performances or events – including all sports battles, meetings and games – unless they have evidence of immunization or immunity."
Others go even further to stop the spread. The Church of Truth on 41st Street has a warning on their website and asks congregants not to bring any children to church until February and they have canceled Sunday School.
On Tuesday, Clark County Public Health officials will call people who may have been exposed to the measles. They will ask for possible symptoms to identify new cases.
