El Paso County Public Health, in partnership with the State, other local public health officials, and Penrose Hospital, have identified nearly 300 people who may have been exposed to a patient with measles in Colorado Springs in early January.

Public Health has been providing guidance to those exposed and assuring that those who are most at risk of getting measles are appropriately monitored or quarantined, due to the contagiousness of the disease.
