VANCOUVER-A new case of measles in the Interior region of B.C. has brought the total number of people infected in the province to 18.

A 12-month-old infant from Pima County has been diagnosed with measles, according to the Pima County Health Department and Arizona Department of Health Services.

Interior Health says a first and single case of measles has been discovered.

"We are working with our healthcare and public health partners to make sure we quickly identify any possible exposures to the community that may have occurred", Marcy Flanagan, director of the Pima County Health Department said in a press release.

People who have not been vaccinated or have not had measles were at risk of getting the disease, which usually starts with symptoms including fever, coughing and a rash that usually starts on the face. It begins with a fever (101 F or higher), red, watery eyes, cough, and runny nose and is followed by a red rash, raised, and blotchy.

The health department asked people who visited any of these three Lakewood locations to call their doctor "immediately to discuss potential exposure and risk of developing the illness".

If you think you or a loved one may have been exposed to measles but you have no symptoms, you can call 8-1-1 or your local public health centre to speak to a nurse.
