People who may have been exposed to measles are asked to monitor for symptoms for 21 days.

These symptoms include fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough, diarrhea and red eyes, followed by a rash that starts on the face and spreads to the chest.

Receiving the two MMR shots is the best protection against measles and those who were born before 1970 have a natural immunity to the disease.
