Health officials have identified yet another measles case in King County, as a recent outbreak continues to spread in Western Washington.

Another case of measles identified in King County

This marks the seventh case in Washington state, and the fourth in King County since the measles began to reappear in Puget Sound region this month.

The latest case in King County is said to be a woman in her 30s, who spent time in various public places before she was aware she was contagious.

Local health officials theorize this most recent outbreak stemmed from a shared exposure to “an unidentified person,” on the morning of April 25, 2019 at Sea-Tac Airport.

The outbreak has already had high schools in Issaquah and Bothell send home students and staff who couldn’t prove their immunization. A total of 39 students and 11 staff members between two schools are excluded until the 21-day incubation period for the measles virus concludes.

Bothell, Issaquah students ordered home for possible measles exposure

Issaquah High School’s 20 students will have to stay home until May 31. Nineteen students at North Creek High School in Bothell will be allowed to return to school in June.

Issaquah High School closed last Thursday after a confirmed case of measles was reported at the school. An infected staff member was at the school for a number of days in early May. Officials spent Thursday verifying the immunization status of its staff members.

Of the seven confirmed measles cases, four have been in King County, one — a Bothell high school student — was in Snohomish County, and two were in Pierce County.

The total list of possible exposure sites in King County can be seen below (the newest sites added to the list are bolded).
