Ohio Department of Health issues memorandum on Ohio measles outbreak

5/6/2014

The Ohio Department of Health, local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating an outbreak of measles occurring in several counties in Ohio. As measles has only rarely been seen in Ohio in the past several decades, a memorandum from the Ohio Department of Health has been issued to assist Ohio schools with understanding measles and what school nurses and school administrators can do to protect their students and staff members. Additional information about the 2014 measles outbreak can be found on the Ohio Department of Health website.
