Those who may have been exposed and believe they have measles symptoms are asked to contact their healthcare provider prior to visiting their offices to avoid more exposure.

In Harris County, two boys and a woman are being treated for measles.

Measles has been confirmed in three more Multnomah County residents bringing the total amount of cases to four in Oregon.

Since the beginning of the year, Clark County Public Health has reported 50 confirmed measles cases and another 11 suspect cases. Five of the cases involve children, at least some of whom had received one round of the vaccination.

As of February 1, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had confirmed 79 individual cases of measles from 10 states, during 2019.

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease, without specific antiviral treatment available, says the CDC.

Recently, Fort Worth, Plano, Houston and Austin were singled out as anti-vaccine "hotspots" because a number of Texas families are opting out of vaccines, according to a study in PLOS Medicine. Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people close to that person who are not yet immune could become infected.

Orders for two types of measles vaccines in Clark County were up almost 500 percent in January compared to the same month a year ago, jumping from 530 doses to 3,150, according to state health department figures. "Parents and caregivers have the power to protect their children and themselves from this disease by getting vaccinated". Other symptoms include a high fever over 101 degrees, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.

Children should receive measles vaccination via one dose of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) when they are 12 to 15 months old and another dose before entering school when they are between 4 to 6 years old, according to the health department.

In 2018, there were 17 outbreaks and about 350 diagnosed cases of measles in the U.S.
