The measles virus spreads quickly and easily through breathing, coughing or sneezing. It can remain in the air for several hours even after an infected person leaves a room. Measles diagnoses occur in Washington State each year. However, with 74 confirmed cases already in 2019, it is important to know how to help reduce the spread of this highly contagious disease.
