BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is warning residents about possible exposure to measles after an international traveler was diagnosed.

The Department of Public Health said the visitor traveled through Boston to Amsterdam while infected on June 22. The exposures may have occurred on the Dartmouth Coach bus line that departed Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire at 11:40 am and arrived at Logan Airport at 2:40 pm. The visitor was also in Terminal E at Logan before boarding flight KLM6016 at Gate E5.

Measles symptoms begin to appear 10 days to two weeks after exposure. They include fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes. A skin rash also appears two to four days after symptoms appear.

Anyone who has been exposed and begins to develop symptoms should call their doctor.
