Another Cal student diagnosed with Measles
April 07, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

BERKELEY — A second University of California at Berkeley student has been diagnosed with measles, according to university officials.

The student, who attended classes the week of March 31, was diagnosed on Friday, according to a statement from the University Health Services.

The diagnosis comes after a Cal student was diagnosed with measles in February.

Campus officials are working with the city of Berkeley’s public health department to notify any residents who may have been exposed to the disease.

Anyone who believes they may have been exposed is urged to review their immunization records and get the measles vaccine as soon as possible if they have not already.

Symptoms of the disease can surface one to three weeks after exposure and include high fever, red, watery eyes, coughing and runny nose. Those infected with measles usually develop a rash on the face that spreads to the rest of the body, typically lasting five to six days, according to health officials.

People infected with the disease are contagious for several days before and after the rash appears.

More information about the illness can be found at www.cdc.gov/measles.
