SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah public health officials are continuing to contain a measles outbreak that has so far sickened five people.
The outbreak began a week ago with one student at Olympus High School in a Salt Lake City suburb. The remaining cases are all connected to the first.
The Salt Lake Valley Health Department is working to contain the measles outbreak and minimize the outbreak's impact by locating exposed individuals, performing blood tests, providing vaccinations, and overseeing isolation of confirmed cases and voluntary quarantine.
Students not vaccinated against measles who were exposed at the four schools have been asked to stay home.
The health department is encouraging testing and voluntary quarantine until April 25 for anyone potentially exposed to the illness who has not been vaccinated.
