Diners at two Michigan restaurants exposed to measles
The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services has warned that diners at two local restaurants in Ann Arbor might have been exposed to measles on 6th or 7th of April.
The warning was accompanied by confirmation of a second case of measles in the state on Friday. Both of the two recent cases involved unrelated adults, but both were travelling aboard the same international flight.
The second victim was at a customer at Mark’s Midtown Coney Island, 3586 Plymouth Road, on 6th of April, and at Benny’s Family Dining on 7th of April. Thus, those who dined at the two restaurants might also be at risk.
Dr. Eden Wells, CMO at the state’s health department, said, “Measles is highly contagious, and though it is generally a rare disease in the United States – in fact it was eliminated from the country in 2000 – it shows up every year as a result of travel to other parts of the world where it continues to be a common illness.”
Michigan’s first case of measles in 2017 was reported on 30th of March in Oakland County.
Measles is a highly communicable viral infection that could be very serious for small kids. It is characterized by symptoms like skin rash, inflamed eyes and sore throat and fever.
