NYSHD: Possible Measles Exposure at OCB in Big Flats

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - The New York State Department of Health is issuing a warning.

If you visited Old Country Buffet in Big Flats last month, you may have been exposed to measles.

The NYSHD said a measles-infected traveler from Europe visited multiple locations in New York. The buffet was one of those locations. The traveler was at the buffet on April 30th, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Measles can survive in the air and surfaces for up to two hours.

The Department also says anyone who has had two doses of the measles vaccine are considered immune, but if you experience a fever, runny nose, cough, or rash, you should seek medical attention.
