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

The Department of Health said the visitor traveled to Amsterdam via Boston on June 22 while infectious. The exposures may have occurred on the Dartmouth Coach bus line, which departed Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, at 11:40 a.m. and arrived at Logan Airport at 12:40 a.m. The visitor was also in Terminal E at Logan before boarding KLM Flight 6016 at Gate E5.

Measles symptoms begin 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 is urged to call their doctor.
