If you or someone you know were in these places at these times, it is a good idea to keep a vigilant eye out for measles symptoms and to call your doctor and check if you're up to date on your measles vaccinations.

You're at a lower risk, according to Denver Public Health, if you were born before 1957, have already had measles or have had one or more measles shots. 

People who were not in the above locations at the specific times are at no risk for measles. 

If you could have been exposed or are showing symptoms, please call your health care provider immediately over the phone and explain what's going on to them. 

If you don't have a health care provider, it's imperative you call an urgent care center or an emergency department. If you need additional help or information, reach out to CO-HELP at 303-389-1687.

Denver Public Health wants anyone who's showing measles symptoms to stay away from child care facilities, schools, work or even public. The disease may be spread to others.

Measles symptoms

Symptoms typically appear between 7 and 14 days of exposure - but could take up to three weeks to appear. Symptoms include:

- fever, runny nose, coughing and red eyes that are sensitive to light
- two to four days after the first set of symptoms, a red rash will appear on the face and spreads to the rest of the body

A person with measles is contagious for four days before and four days after the rash appears. 

Denver Public Health asks that people check over their and their children's vaccination records against the recommended schedules (which can be found at this link) to make sure they're up to date on the measles, mumps and rubella vaccines.
