SEATTLE (AP) — Health officials say a child who apparently contracted measles while overseas was infectious at the Seattle airport the evening of May 26.

The Seattle-King County health department says unvaccinated people could have been exposed to the contagious disease if they were at Sea-Tac Airport in Concourse A and baggage claim that day between 6:20 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Those people should call a health care provider if they develop a fever and rash in the next two weeks.
