URGE you can get vaccinated if you haven't already. Symptoms of measles include fever, watery eyes, and white spots inside the mouth

Check out some important points below from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services: Unvaccinated individuals need to get vaccinated within 72 hours of exposure. If you do not have documentation of two measles (MMR) vaccines from a doctor or Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR), unsure if you have been vaccinated, or unsure if you have had measles in the past, contact your healthcare provider or visit a location above to get vaccinated

Immune Globulin (Ig) treatment is effective within 6 days of exposure for high-risk individuals including those who are unvaccinated or unsure about vaccination status, pregnant women and those with a weakened immune system due to illness and diseases like HIV, malnutrition, and / or medications.

If you develop, do not visit your doctor or emergency room unless you call ahead so they can take precautions to other individuals.

Stay home if you are sick and don't allow visitors in your home as measles is highly contagious. The virus is spread by direct person-to-person contact, and through the air. It could be live in the air for up to two hours where the infected person was present.

Watch for symptoms for 21 days after potential exposure. Call your preferred healthcare provider if you develop and you believe you were exposed
