Passengers in two terminals at Philadelphia International Airport may have been exposed to measles, Pennsylvania Department of Health officials warn. 

“An individual with a suspected case of measles was present in the Philadelphia International Airport on two days and may have exposed many individuals,” said Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine.

Possible times and locations of exposure are:

Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Terminal F from 6:30 p.m. to midnight

Thursday, Oct. 3, Terminal F from 4:00 p.m. to midnight

Thursday, Oct. 3, Terminal A from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Thursday, Oct. 3, Terminal A/B shuttle bus from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 

“The Department of Health is working with the county and municipal health departments to notify Pennsylvanians who were on flights with the suspected case, but other individuals may have been exposed at the airport during the identified times; however, if you have been properly immunized against measles, your risk of getting the disease is minimal," Levin said.
