The Allegheny County Health Department is investigating exposures to a measles case in Pittsburgh and urging self-reporting by individuals who may have been exposed to the case.
The Health Department has identified a case of measles in a person who was exposed to the disease in New York state. Additional testing is being conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and precautionary measures are being implemented to protect those at risk. Contacts in the person’s workplace and healthcare settings are being notified and efforts are under way to find others.
Additional exposures may have occurred when the person rode the northbound 64 Port Authority bus leaving Fifth Avenue and South Highland Avenue going toward Shadyside and Lawrenceville at 9:12 a.m. on Friday, February 14. Anyone who rode this bus between 9 and 11 a.m. on that day may have been exposed.
