Passengers who rode on Amtrak’s northeast regional train No. 171 last Wednesday may have been exposed to the measles. Virginia health officials issued the alert after a foreign visitor came down with the highly contagious illness.
A passenger that flew through BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport near Baltimore to Denver, Colo., and then flew to Albuquerque, N.M. this last week was found to have measles. While most Americans are immune or have been vaccinated, officials are still taking the proper precautions by informing all that may have come into contact aboard the planes or in the airport.
