Health officials in King County are warning that a father and his 6-month-old might have exposed others to measles in public places before they were diagnosed.
The two recently contracted measles while traveling in Asia.
The Health Department said the risk of others getting measles is low because most people have been immunized, but suggested checking the areas where they might have been exposed.
Anyone who contracted measles from the father and infant is likely to develop an illness with fever or rash from March 21 to April 8.
If you suspect you have measles, call a hospital and clinic and tell them you’d like to be evaluated for measles. Calling first will limit possibly exposing more people.

Symptoms begin seven to 21 days after exposure, health officials said, and is contagious four days before a rash appears and four days afterward.
