A Person With The Measles Traveled Through an Oklahoma City Airport

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A person in Oklahoma with measles traveled through Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City and may have exposed others to the virus.

The state Health Department said Friday the infected person lives in Stillwater and has the first confirmed case of measles in Oklahoma since 1997.

The airport said in a news release that the person was a passenger on a United Airlines Flight from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport that arrived at 9:30 p.m. on March 12th. The person went to the United baggage claim area.

The airport advises travelers and visitors who were in the terminal on from 9:30 p.m. March 12 until 1:30 a.m. March 13 of a potential for exposure. Employers who may have had employees in the building at the time were also notified.
