MEASLES ALERT

There have been two confirmed cases of measles in Lowell in recent weeks. Both cases were diagnosed at Lowell Community Health Center and are unrelated to each other.

You may have been exposed to measles if you were at:

  • T.J. Maxx, 288 Chelmsford St., Chelmsford, on Sunday November 11
  • Lowell Community Health Center, 161 Jackson St., Lowell, on Thursday, November 15
  • Walmart Supercenter, 333 Main St., Tewksbury, on Thursday, November 15

If you believe that you may have been exposed, please contact your health care provider or Health Services before going to a health care facility.

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory infection. Symptoms develop between 10-12 days after exposure. Symptoms may include high fever, cough, runny nose, and inflamed eyes. A flat, red rash may develop 3 to 5 days after the initial symptoms, starting on the face and then spreading downward to the rest of the body. Measles may be contagious from a person up to four days before the rash appears and four days after the rash appears.

Anyone who has had measles in the past or has received two doses of Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine is less likely to contract measles, even if exposed.

As part of the Wellness Center, Health Services provides diagnosis and treatment of episodic illnesses such as headache, colds, sore throats, mono, nausea, vomiting, rashes, sprains, vaginitis and urinary tract infections, etc. We provide evaluation and treatment of minor injuries as well as gynecologic care, contraceptive management and counseling, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, health and wellness counseling, the administration of immunizations and laboratory work.
