Watch Out for Measles

There are a lot of bugs in the air this season, including measles. Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease that spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing.  If you breathe the contaminated air or touch an infected surface and then touch your eyes, noses, or mouths, you can become infected if you haven’t developed immunity against the disease.
