Detroit Auto Show Attendees May Have Been Exposed to Rubella
If you attended between January 13th and January 15th, you may have been exposed.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has put out a warning about possible exposure to rubella, otherwise known as German measles, from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month.
MDHS has been informed from another state (so it was NOT a Michigan resident) that an attendee of the auto show may have been contagious while they were here.
Rubella, or the German measles, is an airborne disease that causes a low-grade fever, a sore throat and a rash that spreads over the body.
If you were at the auto show during this time, call your healthcare provider to get your vaccination status.
