Overall health officials to short lawmakers on measles outbreak

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — State health officials strategy to brief the state legislature on the state’s recent measles outbreak.

Nevada Chief Health-related Officer Dr. Tracey D. Green and health department head Romaine Gilliland will update legislators about the state’s response to the measles outbreak on Friday in the course of an Assembly Committee on Overall health and Human Solutions meeting.

Committee chairman James Oscarson said the meeting will be mainly informational and give legislators a possibility to ask inquiries and gather information about the outbreak.

Two confirmed measles cases and two probable cases have been reported more than the last week throughout the state.

The Centers for Illness Manage and Prevention mentioned an estimated 105 measles situations nationwide — mainly in California — have been linked to visits to Disneyland in December or exposure to infected men and women.
