Jun 22, 2018

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has confirmed the state's second case of measles this year and warns the public of possible exposure to the contagious disease.

It says the patient was contagious upon arriving June 12 about 3:45 p.m. at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport at the international arrivals area of the McNamara Terminal.

The agency says the patient used a car rental shuttle bus that evening, stayed at Staybridge Suites in Ann Arbor through June 16, visited a sandwich shop there on June 12 and went to an urgent care clinic on June 14.

People who may have been exposed should watch for symptoms for 21 days and if they develop, contact a health care provider promptly.

The state's first case was in March.
