Minnesota’s only active measles case, a 20-year-old University of Minnesota student, has passed the infectious stage. It will be at least another week until health officials find out if that one case spread elsewhere.
The University of Minnesota is in the news this week after a student tested positive for measles – the first confirmed measles case for the school in 20 years. But it hasn’t been long since Minnesota experienced an outbreak.
The state Health Department is confirming three more cases of measles in Minnesota, bringing this year’s total to 20. That’s twice the number of confirmed cases seen in the state during the past 10 years.
