Pinal County Public Health Services District (PCPHSD) would like to speak with all residents who were at either of these locations during this time frame. If you or someone you know, were at these locations during this time please call our Pinal County Citizen Contact Center at 520-509-3555, toll free 1-888-431-1311, or 311 if you are in Pinal County.

“We are taking precautions in case any Pinal County residents may have been exposed at- either of these locations,” stated PCPHSD Director Dr. Shauna McIsaac. “Measles is highly contagious and because of this it is important that anyone who was at either of these locations, be monitored for 21 days following their exposure.” 

Symptoms of measles begin 7-21 days after exposure and may include:

  • Fever (101 F or higher), red, watery eyes, cough and runny nose
  • The fever is followed by a rash that is red, raised, and blotchy. The rash typically begins on the face at the hairline and moves down the body. The rash may last for 5-6 days and may turn brownish.

Anyone who was at one of these locations during these times and develops symptoms is encouraged to call their provider and let them know they may have been exposed to measles.

Measles is a highly-contagious, vaccine-preventable viral illness spread through coughing and sneezing. You are considered protected from measles if you:

  • Have received two doses of MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine
  • Have previously had measles.
  • Have laboratory evidence of immunity

Please visit https://www.cdc.gov/measles/index.html. For more information

“We are paying close attention to this possible measles exposure in Maricopa County and will update the public with information as it is made available. We strongly encourage anyone who has not received two MMR vaccines to be vaccinated now.” Stated Dr Shauna McIsaac, Director of the PCPHSD.

Check with your provider or visit PCPHSD clinics for vaccinations. PCPHSD clinics will provide MMR vaccine at no cost to you.  For a list of our clinic locations, please visit: http://www.pinalcountyaz.gov/publicheatlh/Pages/OfficeLocations.aspx
