Possible exposure to measles in Saguenay

However, the risk of exposure will be very low, according to the CIUSSS du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, and employees of the two companies involved have already been informed by Public Health.

“The infected person’s contacts were very limited during his stay. “Persons who attended the designated exposure sites, during the dates and times in question, are invited to monitor their health status,” CIUSSS spokeswoman Melissa Pradet wrote in an email to Daily.

Symptoms of measles include fever, cough, congestion, runny nose, conjunctivitis, and sensitivity of the eyes to light, as well as general malaise. As a result of these symptoms, redness appears on the body.

A person is considered protected against measles if they were born before 1970, if they received one dose of the vaccine between 1970 and 1979, or if they received two doses of the vaccine after 1980.

“Anyone who is insufficiently vaccinated can get the vaccine for free by contacting their doctor, their CLSC or by going to Clickanté.ca», defines public health.

Currently, Public Health states that no cases of measles have been reported in the area.
