Alberta Health Services (AHS) is warning the public of potential exposures to measles in Calgary.
British Columbia health officials advised AHS that an individual with measles visited three locations in Calgary, including the airport:
* Forbidden City Dim Sum & Seafood, 999 – 36 St N.E. Jan. 15, 6 to 10:30 p.m.
* Waterfront Condos, 222 Riverfront Avenue SW, through Jan. 15 – 18, 12 a.m. to 10 a.m.
* Calgary International Airport on Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
* WestJet Flight WS287 from Calgary to Vancouver — the flight left at 11:35 a.m
“You are at risk if you were in those locations during those time frames, born after 1970, have not had measles, or didn’t receive two doses of the measles vaccine.
AHS is asking people to monitor symptoms, which include a fever, cough, runny noise, red eyes, and a red blotchy rash that appears three to seven days after the fever starts.
Measles is extremely contagious and spreads through the air. There’s no treatment, but can be prevented through immunization.”
