Measles is highly contagious, and if one person has it, 9 out of 10 people around that person will also become infected if they have not yet vaccinated, officials said. Measles starts with fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat followed by a rash that spreads over the body. Officials say they had stayed at home and in contact with health officials.
