    The Department of Health announced six diagnosed measles cases Wednesday in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties. This is in addition to the case announced Sunday by the Tacoma-Pierce County Public Health Department. 

    Three cases were announced in King County. One was announced in Snohomish County and two in Pierce County. 

    Staff at Issaquah High School -- where one of the diagnosed patients had a potential exposure -- announced Wednesday evening that school would be closed Thursday so the public health department could check immunization records. 

    Staff at the school needed to obtain their records and share those records with administrators. Issaquah High staff said they had proof of immunization status for all students, and would still be offering AP tests Thursday at the school. 

    While the exact sources and locations of the measels infections are not known, all the new cases spent time in SeaTac Airport when they were likely infectious. Read more about the individual cases below.
