The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services have identified and confirmed a second case of the measles in Ann Arbor.
“It is the second measles case in 2018 for Michigan and just for a point of reference, we only had 2 cases in 2017 in Michigan," said Angela Mincuci, spokeswoman for the Michigan Department for Health and Human Services. "So for us to have a second case already in June it is an indicator that we need to be on alert."
The ill person arrived to Detroit Metro Airport on June 12 around 3:45 p.m. at the McNamara Terminal international area. Officials say the person was considered contagious at the time and are contacting potentially exposed passengers from the flight.
The person also possibly exposed the disease at these places:

People who may have been at the listed locations during the listed times should watch for symptoms within 21 days after possible exposure.
