County health officials stress this is not a public health emergency. They say the vast majority of people in the county are vaccinated against measles and are protected.

“Our message is if you’re not one of the majority who’s protected and you might have been exposed, to know what the symptoms are and watch for them,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Public Health Director for Santa Clara County.

Symptoms include a rash, fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes. They can develop anywhere from seven to 21 days after exposure.
