• Child infected with measles visited U-District restaurant


    SEATTLE - King County officials confirmed Sunday there is potential for exposure to measles after an infected child visited a University District restaurant.

    According to health officials, the child was at the Aladdin Gyro-cery in the 4100 block of University Way Northeast on Aug. 18 between 1 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. 

    Officials said the child was unvaccinated and was exposed to measles while traveling in Europe. The infected child was at the restaurant during the contagious period. 

    Anyone who was at the restaurant around the same time may have been exposed.

     People are urged to find out if they have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles before. Also, people are to call a health care provider immediately if they develop an illness between Aug. 25 to Sept. 8. 

    This case is unrelated to previous ones in King County last month. 

    King County officials have notified the locations where the public may have been exposed.
