Arizona tracking hundreds of people after possible measles exposure

January 29, 2015

Public health officials in Arizona are monitoring 1,000 people, including 195 children who may have been exposed to measles, stemming from the outbreak that originated in Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park.

A Maricopa County woman has been diagnosed with measles after exposure at a Phoenix-area medical center to a family of four who were linked to the Disneyland outbreak, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services. Officials suspect the woman could have then exposed more individuals at the medical center during a 2-day period. As of Jan. 28, there have been seven confirmed cases of measles in Arizona, according to the department.
