Clark County Public Health is continuing its investigation into a possible case of measles in a child, and has identified the Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Office Building as a fourth location where people may have been exposed to measles.

People who visited the medical office, 2121 N.E. 139th St. in Vancouver, and used the lobbies, stairwells and elevators from 10:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 3 may have been exposed, according to a press release from Clark County Public Health.

Three other businesses were also previously announced: J.C. Penney, 19005 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver (from 2 to 5 p.m. June 27); Ross Dress for Less, 4708 N.E. Thurston Way, Vancouver (noon to 3 p.m. June 28); and Svitoch, 4804 N.E. Thurston Way, Vancouver (noon to 3 p.m. June 28).

Measles is spread through the air from coughs or sneezes, and it is contagious before symptoms emerge, which is up to three weeks after exposure.
