Authorities in two states in the Pacific Northwest have confirmed two separate cases of measles and warned the public on Friday of possible exposure, reports Fox News.

The Clark County Public Health Department in Washington said in a news release there was a confirmed case of measles in a child who traveled to Clark County from outside the country in late December.

The child, whose immunization status is unverified, visited an urgent care clinic in Vancouver, Wash., from noon to 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 31.

“Clark County Public Health is advising anyone who has been exposed and believes they have symptoms of measles to call their health care provider prior to visiting the medical office to make a plan that avoids exposing others in the waiting room,” the agency said.
