Two new measles cases have been brought to Oregon

News two new measles cases have been brought to oregon through an international flight into portland, with*one of those cases potentially exposing people in lane county.

Kezi 9 news reporter emma withrow was at one of the exposure locations earlier today with some reaction to this unsettling news.

Oregon health authority epidemiologists are working with public health staff in both counties to confirm sites where others may have been exposed.

So far four sites have been confrimed as exposure locations, one in creswell, the creswell bakery, and three in eugene, bier stein, blu mist, and north fork public house.

Customers at north fork public house voiced their concern after hearing about the measles cases.

Latoya: "i mean it makes me nervous, just as a mother of two children, and i believe in vaccinations, but i know that alot of other people arent."

Those that have already been vaccinated for measles are at a very low risk of getting this disease, but those that have not been vaccinated and that have been at north fork public house or blu mist are at a higher risk.

Riley: "its scary for sure and nerve wracking, but not that surprising."

The general manager at north fork public house says they are working with lane county health officials to make sure everything is safe for customers eating at their restaurant.

Latoya: "but i mean its something serious, people are dying, children are dying, elderly are dying, so as a parent its concerning.

Its concerning that something we thought was eradicated is returning."

Some customers are very concerned for those who aren't vaccinated.

Kayla juan: for the children that aren't vaccinated its really dangerous for them and it just doesn't make you feel comfortble."

The oregon health authority reports that measles poses the highest risk to unvaccinated pregnant women, infants under 12 months of age, and people with weakened immune systems. in eugene emma
