Public health advisory
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has confirmed a case of measles in our area, with potential exposures at Smith College's Dewey and Hatfield halls, Baystate Medical Center in Springfield and Valley Medical Center in Greenfield, between late March and early April.
While health officials are taking all necessary and appropriate measures to prevent further illness, members of the campus community should be aware of the symptoms of measles.
Individuals who have received two measles vaccinations, or who were born before 1957 are considered immune and not at risk.
If you have questions or concerns about your health, call UHS' Triage Advice Nurse, (413) 577-5229, during health center hours. Read the measles fact sheet.
