If you were present at the one of the recent measles locations of interest (LOIs), and you are not immune to measles, you may be at high risk of developing and spreading measles.
Please do all of the following:
- Contact Healthline urgently on 0800 611 116. Healthline will ensure local Public Health staff contact you to check your immunity and provide information and advice.
- If you are pregnant or have a medical condition that has affected your immune system, please let Healthline know.
- Look at the quarantine dates for the event you were at. Stay at home or in your accommodation (do not go to school or work) from the quarantine start date until you have been contacted by a public health service – they will let you know what to do.
Watch out for measles symptoms
- At any time, if you develop symptoms of measles contact your GP/doctor or call Healthline on 0800 611 116 for free advice 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
- Before seeking care, call first and tell the healthcare professional that you have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with measles. This will help them take steps to keep other people safe.
Find out if you have evidence that you are immune to measles.
When public health contact you, they will ask for evidence of your measles immunity.
It will be really helpful if you can find out this information before public health contact you.
If you were born before 1 January 1969, you do not need to provide evidence of measles immunity.
