A person with the measles potentially exposed people to the  infection at two North County health facilities earlier this month.

The person went to the Scripps Coastal Medical Center's Urgent Care on Cedar Road in Vista on Martch 8th and 9th.

The same person was at Scripps Memorial Hospital in Encinitas March 9th and 10th in the emergency room and radiology department.

The health department is notifying people they know of who were at the facilities.

They also say anyone who believes they could have the measles, or anything as contagious, should call their doctor before going to the office or an emergency room, so they can take measures to prevent exposure to others.

Early symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes. The distinctive red rash usually appears one to four days after early symptoms appear.
