Travelers at Dulles Airport Possibly Exposed to Measles


June 18, 2013

The Loudon County Health Department says if you were at Dulles International Airport on June 7, you may have been exposed to a person with the measles.

Officials say you may have been exposed if you were in Concourse A or B, International Arrivals building, or in the Baggage Claim level of the Main Terminal between 6 PM and 9 PM.

If you were at the airport during that time, and notice symptoms of measles, you should notify your doctor.

Officials advise you to tell your doctor you were exposed to measles before going to the office or hospital.

Symptoms include runny nose, fever, coughing, and watery red eyes during the first stage. During the second stage, which can happen up to a week later, a rash appears on the face and spreads over the entire body.
