Allegheny County reports second measles case

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Allegheny County health authorities say the second case of measles in the last month has been reported.

Most people are not at risk because they have been vaccinated, but people should call their primary care physician if they have symptoms such as a runny nose or cough and a high fever.

The Health Department has notified the person's workplace and has also identified three other places where others might have been exposed. Those are an office building at 2790 Mosside in Monroeville on May 16, the Berry Quool yogurt store in Oakmont on May 17, and the downtown Citizen's Bank Building at 525 William Penn Place on May 19 or 20.

Nationally about 189 people had measles last year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
