Although the United States appears to have avoided losing its nearly 20-year status as a measle-free nation, there have been at least 1,243 cases of measles from 31 states reported to the CDC thus far in 2019 — more than any year since 1992.
There are multiple tests available that doctors can use to ascertain if a patient has measles, but physicians may not be familiar with all the testing options or the benefits and disadvantages of each test.
