Measles
Several states are currently experiencing measles outbreaks resulting from international travels, including California. Measles is a highly contagious disease that starts with fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat followed by a rash that spreads over the body. There can also be serious complications. Vaccination is the best way to protect against the disease.

Note that there are currently no outbreak-related cases in Sacramento County.
