Measles case confirmed in Traverse City: List of possible exposure locations

Health officials in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula are urging people to watch for measles symptoms after a young woman who recently traveled to Ukraine was confirmed to have the highly contagious disease .

The Grand Traverse County Health Department says the unvaccinated woman returned to northern Michigan with measles and officials wouldn’t be surprised if additional cases are found. She may have exposed people at a store, government office and health facilities in Traverse City from June 30 to July 4.

The department says there was no exposure at the National Cherry Festival, which ended last weekend and draws big crowds each summer to Traverse City.

The case is the 45th in Michigan this year. Most have been in Detroit’s suburbs . The number is the highest since 65 in 1991.

The exposure locations in Grand Traverse County include:

    • Sunday, June 30, from 5:00 – 10:00pm:  Walmart (2640 Crossing Cir., Traverse City)
    • Monday, July 1, from 2:00 – 5:00pm:  Department of Human Services (701 S Elmwood, Traverse City)
    • Tuesday, July 2, from 2:30 - 5:00 pm:  Munson Family Practice (1400 Medical Campus Drive, Traverse City)
    • Wednesday, July 3, from 4:15 - 5:00 pm:  Munson Family Practice (1400 Medical Campus Drive, Traverse City)
    • Thursday, July 4, from 9:30am – 12:15pm:  Munson Medical Center Emergency Room (1105 6th St, Traverse City)
