No measles cases reported in county so far
Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 — The recent measles outbreak that began last December in Disneyland has raised health concerns all across the nation.
The good news is no cases of measles have been reported in Lassen County, but the measles outbreak should be a concern to all of us, with the numbers of infected individuals growing almost daily.
As of Jan. 28, 98 people from 14 states have contracted the disease. Eighty-two live in California and two-thirds of those were associated with the Disneyland outbreak. Some school districts in Southern California are now preventing unimmunized children from attending class, and a handful of potential cases exist in nearby Washoe County, just across the stateline.Add a comment
