Meanwhile, those who are most at risk of being infected are infants (under one year of age) who are too young to have received the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine as well as older individuals who have refused vaccination.

Public health officials are warning people who visited several NY locations including a rest stop and a diner that they could be at increased risk of contracting measles.

Individuals who are not immune to measles and were exposed are at risk for developing measles.

Symptoms of measles include a fever (often high), cough, runny nose, red eyes and rash (usually starting on the face and spreading down the body).

Measles is a highly contagious disease and can be contracted easily by breathing in air that has been shared by an infected person.

People are considered infectious from four days before to four days after the rash appears.

The best prevention measure for measles is to get vaccinated.

Those individuals who may not have been immunized against measles, or haven't been completely immunized, may receive temporary protection against measles by getting treatment from their medical provider.

It's recommended people contact their health care provider if they develop measles symptoms.
