The person was present at locations in 108 Mile Ranch and Lone Butte between March 1 and March 3, including Tim Hortons, Spruce Hill Resort, and Interlakes Regional Library.

People with the symptoms who think they may have been exposed to the virus should call their health providers in advance of a visit so precautions can be taken to prevent exposure to staff members and other patients.

That initial outbreak included 12 people who caught the virus at a couple of French immersion schools in East Vancouver, and three more who contracted measles while travelling. Symptoms consist of a fever of 101F or higher, red, watery eyes, cough and runny nose which is followed by a rash that is read, raised and blotchy.

IHA adds, the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against measles is to ensure vaccinations are up to date.

A further 18,000 vaccines are now being rushed to health centres throughout the Canterbury district and are expected to be available in practices from Wednesday, a board spokesman said via email.

Measles spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Complications from the illness can include pneumonia, inflammation of the brain, convulsions, deafness, brain damage and death.
