Metro North Public Health Unit has confirmed a case of measles in a man from Brisbane’s northside. The man travelled on public transport without knowing he was infectious.
Anyone who develops measles-like symptoms within the next week or two should stay home and contact their GP for advice. It is important to call the medical practice first to say you could have measles, so that staff can take precautions to avoid spreading the disease to others.
Further advice is available by calling 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84).
