A person who visited the auto show between Jan. 13 to Jan. 15 has been diagnosed with Rubella

If you attended this year's auto show in Detroit, health officials from MI are warning people that you may have been exposed to Rubella after an attendee was diagnosed with it. Evidently, the potential exposure occurred during a press review where thousands of journalists from all over the world gathered to interview executives and watch some vehicles being revealed.

MDHHS says rubella is a viral illness, spread through coughing and sneezing. The MDHHS did not specify in a news release which state that resident is from, but "this individual may have been contagious while in Detroit".

The department says symptoms can begin between 12 and 23 days after a person contracts the disease.

Rash that starts on the face and spreads to rest of the body.

More than 774,000 people attended this year's NAIAS during public days, according to organizers.

Rubella is a contagious disease caused by a virus. Rubella can be prevented with rubella-containing vaccine, which is primarily administered as the combination measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and is included in the series of routine childhood immunizations.

Authorities are warning attendees of a recent auto show in Detroit that they may have been exposed to rubella, from an attendee who was possibly contagious at the time of the event.

Anyone who may have been exposed and has potentially not been immunized to the virus is encouraged to contact a health care provider with any questions.
