LIVINGSTON - The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services is urging anyone who visited the Eppes Essen restaurant in Livingston on Sunday April 10, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., to contact their health care provider immediately to discuss a potential exposure to measles.
The DHSS says people exposed at the restaurant on East Mount Pleasant Avenue could develop symptoms as early as April 15 or as late as May 1. Symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.
Officials say restaurant patrons may have been exposed to two young adult women from France who were not vaccinated against measles and had been exposed to the viral illness before arriving in New Jersey on April 7.
The DHSS says anyone potentially exposed should call their health care provider first, so necessary arrangements can be made for them to be evaluated without putting other patients at the medical practice at risk.
