Two Measles Cases Confirmed in Hamilton
Waikato District Health Board’s public health unit has been notified of two cases of measles in the same family.
One student attends Hillcrest High School and the other Berkley Normal Middle School.
The Hillcrest High student was not thought to be infectious while at school and no quarantine measures were put in place apart from a letter to all parents informing them of the case and reminding them of signs and symptoms of measles.
Unfortunately the Berkley
student was at school while infectious but with no symptoms
of disease and thus Berkley School will put quarantine
measures in place over the next couple of days.
