Measles Cases Holding Fairly Steady For Now

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Alberta Health officials say there are 20 confirmed cases of measles in the Lethbridge region and multiple families are under quarantine.

 

The good news is that we're not seeing a huge increase in the numbers and they have somewhat plateaued. There will be other cases, but we're not seeing exponential growth at this point in time, but it could still happen.

 

Dr. Vivien Suttorp feels that's because everyone has been working together to prevent the spread. She says "people are really stepping up and trying to do the best thing for their families and also for the general public at large, so people who do have disease staying home, isolating those children who are sick for the recommended time period, and people who have been exposed staying at home under that quarantine of 21 days, and we're seeing a lot of good compliance with that."

 

Suttorp adds all the confirmed cases continue to be with individuals who were not immunized.

 

Measles immunization clinics are scheduled in Lethbridge at the main pavilion of Exhibition Park on the 13th and 20th of November. They will run from 2 to 7pm.
