MANALAPAN -

The State Department of Health is naming another location in Monmouth County where people may have been exposed to the measles.

According to health officials, a person infected with the measles symptoms came into contact with others at LabCorp in Manalapan.

Health officials say the same person went to Rosalita's Roadside Cantina on Route 9 Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Anyone not vaccinated is at risk of contracting the virus.

They could also be a carrier, even if they don't contract the virus. If you are vaccinated, you are not a carrier.

Health officials say the person with measles symptoms lives in Middlesex County.

It's the 14th case of measles in the state this year.

The Health Department is currently looking into whether or not this case is linked to the outbreaks in Ocean County or other states.

The CDC reports 626 cases in the U.S – which is 71 more than just last week as the country is on track to have the highest number of cases since the virus was eradicated in 2000 through vaccinations.
