LAS VEGAS (AP) — Health officials have confirmed three new measles cases in Clark County, bringing to nine the number of confirmed cases there since the start of the year.
The Southern Nevada Heath District said Friday the new cases involve two employees and a patron at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The three are adults under the age of 55.
Health district officials say one of the workers was potentially contagious while working shifts beginning at 4 p.m. over a four-day period ending Saturday, and anyone who was at the restaurant at those times should contact their doctor if they’re not immunized against measles.
The health district previously confirmed measles in an infant believed to have been the source for an earlier measles case involving an Emeril’s employee.
