Measles is a highly contagious illness for people who have not had the measles vaccine. Symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. Anyone who believes that they may have contracted the illness should contact a doctor before leaving their home. This will prevent any unnecessary exposure.

Symptoms could develop as late as Nov. 22.

Officials say that the outbreak is linked to a Lakewood resident who traveled overseas to Israel last month.

More information about measles and the outbreak can be found on the state health department’s website.
