Anyone who develops symptoms of measles should seek medical attention. Wear a mask and call ahead to ensure you can isolate from others.

Health care professionals should be alert to measles in patients with fever and rash, especially if they were outside or visited a listed exposure site during the indicated period. Persons with compatible disease should be tested, advised to be isolated, and notified to the Ministry of Health.

Offer a free measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine to all persons born during or since 1966 who do not have documentation showing that they have received two doses of measles-containing vaccines. Vaccinate all individuals who are not sure of their vaccination history, regardless of Medicare status.
