Health officials warn of measles exposure at Denver airport

Colorado News

DENVER (AP) — Colorado health officials say people who traveled through Denver International Airport last Wednesday afternoon may have been exposed to measles.

Three children tested positive for the highly contagious disease after traveling to a country where there was an outbreak. The Tri-County Health Department says health officials don’t consider this an outbreak because the children are related. But they are warning people who were in the airport between 1:15 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 11 that they may be at risk.

They are also notifying people who were at the Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Anschutz Emergency Department between 1 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 12.
