LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas health officials say measles has been confirmed in two of three suspected cases in northwest Arkansas.
The Arkansas Department of Health said late Thursday that "at least" two cases involving three siblings in Gentry are positive.
Department spokesman Ed Barham told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/R1Ow6Q ) that additional testing is pending on the third case.
The agency has said the children are 10, 14 and 17 and had not been immunized.
The two oldest are a senior and a freshman at Ozark Adventist Academy. The youngest is not old enough to attend the private high school.
School Principal Mike Dale told the newspaper that the senior and the youngest child tested positive.
Health officials say the youngest child became ill after a recent trip to Romania, Italy and Switzerland.
