Anyone who may have had an exposure and is immunocompromised or unimmunized is asked to contact their local public health unit to assess eligibility and need for post-exposure treatment.

Symptoms of measles can appear up to 21 days after exposure, and include high fever, cold-like symptoms (such as coughing and runny nose), sore eyes, sensitivity to light and a red rash lasting four to seven days.
