Peel Public Health is warning Brampton residents about possible exposure to the measles after a confirmed case of the illness in the region.

The infected person visited the Sheridan College Davis Cup Library, rode on the Brampton Transit 104 bus and entered the Guardian Sheridan Pharmacy on Friday afternoon.

Officials say anyone who was in those same places during the following dates and times may have been exposed:

  • Feb. 9, Sheridan College Library – Davis Campus, Brampton, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Feb. 9, Brampton Transit, Route 104 Chinguacousy Express, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Feb. 9, Guardian Sheridan Pharmacy, 373 Steeles Ave. W, Brampton, 2 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

 

If you did visit one of those locations, you’re asked to check your immunization records and keep a close eye on your health for the next 21 days.

Some of the symptoms of measles include a high fever, a cough, or runny nose and a rash.

If you think you’ve been infected call your doctor or clinic and warn them rather than showing up unannounced.
