16 May 2018
People who visited the Noble Park Aquatic Centre (NPAC) last week are being warned about possible exposure to measles.
Earlier today Victoria’s Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Brett Sutton issued a warning after a confirmed diagnosis of the disease in a man who visited several locations across south east Melbourne last week.
He said the Australian-born man, aged in his 20s, became infectious after returning from Thailand on Friday 4 May and was now being treated in hospital.
Dr Sutton said he attended Noble Park Aquatic Centre (NPAC) between 7am and 4pm on Tuesday 8, Wednesday 9, Thursday 10 and Friday 11 May.
Dr Sutton said that people who were at NPAC during these times and develop symptoms over the next week should alert their doctor or hospital emergency department.
Symptoms include a common cold like illness, including runny nose, red eyes and a cough, followed by a fever and rash. For more information about measles and seeking treatment visit https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/conditionsandtreatments/measles
