Linked below are guidance documents from NC DHHS regarding a Measles exposure at a Greensboro hotel and guidance for clinicians evaluating and caring for patients with suspected vaping-associated lung injury.

Measles in Traveler in Guilford County

A case of measles has been diagnosed in an individual who traveled through Guilford County while contagious on October 2 and 3, 2019. Individuals could have been exposed at the Piedmont Triad International Airport and at the Greensboro Wyndham Garden Hotel on those dates. Every effort is being made to contact persons with known exposure; however, it is possible that other unrecognized contacts may have been exposed at these locations. Read the NC DHHS memo here.
