Measles is making a comeback in the Lower 48 and health officials in Petersburg say residents here should be prepared for it to spread. It started with an outbreak in California in December and has since spread to 17 states including Washington and Oregon. The recent outbreak has affected over 120 people so far.
I spoke with some people with the Petersburg Medical Center and Public Health about the measles and what they are recommending to the public.
That was Anna Schmidt with the Petersburg Medical Center and Erin Michael with the Petersburg Public Health Center.
If you have any questions about the measles, you can contact the Medical Center at 772-4299 or Public Health at 772-4611.
March 31 is the deadline to make a donation to a nonprofit through your Permanent Fund Dividend. Thank You for supporting Petersburg nonprofits!!
