Two infants who attend a KinderCare Learning Center in Palatine, Ill., have tested positive for measles, and three more cases have been diagnosed, based on clinical and other criteria — although lab results are pending (as of Feb. 5), according to a statement from the Cook County Department of Public Health and state officials. Officials say it is not clear whether these cases are linked to a previously confirmed case in suburban Cook County or to the outbreak associated with Disneyland in California, according to media reports.
All parents, staff and faculty have been notified about the measles cases at KinderCare. Anyone who has not had the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine was instructed to stay at home and away from unvaccinated individuals for the next 21 days.
