Officials are asking the public to be aware of these spots and watch out for symptoms. Washington County Health Department Officer Dr. Jennifer Vines said while the measles virus is rare, it can be serious for anyone who gets sick.
"People think, 'Oh, we don't have measles here.' Some people opt out of immunization for personal reasons or have to opt out for medical reasons," Vines said. "And this is just a really good reminder that we do get a case about once a year, and it is highly infectious."
If you think you may have come down with the measles virus, you should contact your local health department or primary care physician.
