Measles: What you should know

Measles is a serious respiratory disease that is spread easily through coughing and sneezing. Measles is a very contagious virus that can spread even if the person with measles is no longer in the room. Measles can also be spread by an infected person even before a rash or any other symptoms appear. 

Because measles has recently made a comeback in the U.S., APIC’s Communications Committee has created a fact sheet on the disease for consumers.
