Measles alert at library

WA’S health department has issued a measles alert after a baby with the disease visited Morley library on March 12.

Visitors may have been exposed if they attended between 9.25am and 11am, particularly if they attended Rhyme Time or Story Time. Those sessions have been postponed until March 30.

The department says “individuals should be alert for the symptoms of measles from 19-30 March” if they were at the library.

Early symptoms are fever, cough, runny nose, a sore throat, followed by a red blotchy rash.
