Toronto Public Health officials are focusing on a British Airways flight earlier in the month as they deal with a case of measles.
They say that passengers who were on an August 19th flight from London, England to Toronto were exposed to measles.
There was also a chance of exposure in Terminal Three at Pearson International Airport, and at the Tennessee Tavern on Queen Street West on the 19th and into the 20th.
As well, people may have been exposed to it while at the St. Joseph’s Health Centre Emergency Department from August 22nd to the 24th.
Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to measles is advised to check if their measles vaccination is up to date, and to watch for cold-like symptoms, including fever and sore eyes.
