There has been a confirmed case of measles in an employee at a store where I regularly do my grocery shopping. According to health officials, DD and I may have been exposed, as we shopped there on January 26. DD (6 y.o.) is unvaccinated. I am not so worried about myself, as I know my parents made sure I had every vaccine possible.
What I am most concerned about is the fact that my husband is in the hospital due to a severe leg fracture, and he will probably be there for weeks. I have been at the hospital with him, as have our kids. Could we be contributing to a possible measles epidemic at the hospital? He was transferred yesterday to hospital #2, which means we could be spreading things at two different places.
Here is the article about the local outbreak. Is there anything I can/should be doing to keep everyone safe?
