Health Officials Investigating Measles Exposure on Flight into Mississauga
If you were on this flight, health officials warn that you may have been exposed to measles.
According to a recent statement, Niagara Region Public Health is investigating a laboratory-confirmed case of measles in an adult who acquired their infection while travelling outside Canada.
Officials are investigating multiple airline exposure locations on Friday, February 22 that are linked to the case.
One such location is an Air Canada flight that arrived at Toronto Pearson International Airport at 6:20 p.m. that evening (Air Canada #16 at Terminal 1).
“If you think you may have measles and need to see a doctor, you must call ahead to the doctor's office, walk-in clinic, or emergency department,” the statement advises.
“This will allow health care staff to manage your care appropriately.”
Symptoms of measles include coughing, runny nose, red watery eyes, fever, a rash beginning on the face that moves down the body, and white spots inside the mouth.
