ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — State health officials are warning residents of southeastern Minnesota about possible exposure to measles.
The Minnesota Department of Health learned this week that a non-Minnesota resident with confirmed measles traveled through Minnesota from another state.
According to the department, people may have been exposed to measles on April 13 at a McDonald’s on Main Street in Winona and on April 16 at the Freeborn County Co-op gas station in Albert Lea.
Health Department spokesman Doug Schultz tells the Star Tribune the infected person was from Missouri.
