Boston health officials warn of possible measles exposure


(AP) — Public health officials in Boston are warning of a possible measles exposure after an individual with a confirmed case of the disease traveled from New York City to Boston and then to New Hampshire.

Health officials said the possible exposure occurred Tuesday when the individual boarded a 4 p.m. Greyhound bus from New York to Boston before taking a 10 p.m. Boston Express Bus from Logan International Airport to Manchester, New Hampshire.

Officials said anyone on the buses or at the South Station bus terminal in Boston between 8:30 p.m. and midnight could have been exposed and could become ill between March 3 and March 19 — up to 21 days following a potential exposure.

Measles is a highly contagious virus that is usually spread through coughing and sneezing.
