Measles exposure alert issued for Philadelphia International Airport visitors – NJ.com

3 min read


Travelers who visited Philadelphia International Airport last week could have been exposed to measles and are urged to make sure they have been vaccinated against the disease, health officials said Friday.

“An individual with a suspected case of measles was present in the Philadelphia International Airport on two days and may have exposed many individuals,” Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine Levine said in a statement.

The state health department is working to identify and notify people who may have shared a flight with the infected person.

“Other individuals may have been exposed at the airport during the identified times,” Levine said. “If you believe you might have been exposed and experience symptoms, please contact your health-care provider or call our toll-free hotline at 1-877-PA-HEALTH.”

The potential exposures occurred at the following locations and times:

  • Oct. 2, Terminal F from 6:30 p.m. to midnight
  • Oct. 3, Terminal F from 4:00 p.m. to midnight
  • Oct. 3, Terminal A from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 3, Terminal A/B shuttle bus from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Pennsylvania has 15 confirmed measles cases so far this year. New Jersey has 19 confirmed measles cases in 2019.

Last week, Nutley officials suspended sports events after a measles case was reported at an elementary school in the town.

Symptoms can include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. The illness can be spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes and people can become sick if they come in contact with mucus or saliva from an infectious person. Measles can be prevented with a vaccine.
