Denver – People who visited Target, King Soopers or any of five other locations in the south Denver metro area are being warned about possible exposure to measles. That’s because a baby with measles was at all of those places sometime last week.
Tri-County Health Department Executive Director Dr. John Douglas says measles is the most infectious of infectious diseases. It’s a respiratory infection and spread by coughing and sneezing.
According to Douglas, the baby was at spots in Denver, Parker, Lone Tree, Littleton and Highlands Ranch. He says the health department has contacted nearly every person known to have been in contact with the baby. The department is now notifying the public out of an abundance of caution.
