Kansas health officials are warning the public about a potential exposure to measles at multiple Wichita locations.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Sedgwick County Division of Health say that a number of people may have been exposed to the contagious illness.

The state health department has created a list of Wichita-area locations and dates where people may have been exposed. It asks residents who were in those areas to call the department for further evaluation.

Anyone who was exposed at the locations below and is experiencing fever or rash call the Epidemiology Hotline at 1-877-427-7317.

  • July 10 between 6:45-9:30 a.m. Lamar’s Donuts located at 10051 West 21st St.

Symptoms of measles infection usually appear between 7-21 days after exposure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says infected people can spread measles to others from about four days before the rash appears to four days after.

The CDC says infants younger than 12 months, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are at high risk of complications from measles.

Health officials recommend that contacts stay home if they have a fever, except to see a healthcare provider. Before visiting a healthcare provider, call ahead so that the provider can take measures to protect other patients and staff.
