Measles information and resources
As you may have heard/read in recent media, there has been a confirmed case of measles in Snohomish County (the case was not in the Snohomish School District). While there has not been a case at any of our schools, we urge you to check with your medical provider to make sure you and your family are up to date on your vaccinations. You can also check your immunizations online at Wa.MyIR.net.
Measles is a highly contagious disease that can have serious health consequences, especially for young people and adults. Almost everyone who has not had the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) shot will get measles if they are exposed to the measles virus. Measles spreads through coughing or sneezing and the virus can survive in a room for up to two hours after an infected person leaves. Below is some information/resources regarding measles that you may find helpful:
