Suspected Case of Measles at Middlesex Hospital

Middlesex Hospital has notified the state Department of Health about a suspected case of measles in the hospital’s emergency department on Sunday.

Middlesex Hospital released a statement that says hospital officials “became aware very quickly of a suspected case of measles in a patient in the Emergency Department”  and isolated the patient as a precaution.

The hospital has notified the Department of Public Health and is taking “all the necessary steps to address the situation,” the statement says.

In April, a state department of health news release says there had been three confirmed cases of measles in the state.
