MEASLES CASE: Confirmed in IU student

March 29, 2013

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Indiana health officials say a student at Indiana University's Bloomington campus has a confirmed case of measles.

The State Department of Health said Friday that the student did not attend classes while infectious and does not live on campus. The agency said it's working with Monroe County's health department and IU to prevent the illness from spreading.

Officials say the student visited the IU Student Health Center on Monday while still infectious, but wore a mask during that visit.

The Student Health Center is contacting a small number of patients at the clinic who may have been exposed.

Measles is a highly contagious illness that causes fever, runny nose, cough and a rash covering the body. Measles is particularly dangerous for children and can be deadly in rare cases.
