Measles Case Confirmed On University Of Minnesota Campus
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota says a case of measles has been confirmed in a student on the Twin Cities campus.
The university said Wednesday the student had recently returned from international travel, and is now isolated off campus while recovering.
Before being diagnosed, the student attended classes from January 20th through 23rd on the East Bank, and had visited the University Recreation and Wellness Center on the evening of January 20th.
University students, faculty and staff who have been immunized against measles are not at risk.
The school says the university population is highly immunized due to enrollment requirements. But faculty or staff members who have not been vaccinated for the infectious disease should contact their health care provider.
