Just learning of possible measles exposure on flight into Pearson International from the Philippines back on May 8th.
Toronto Public Health say passengers on EVA Air flights BR 0272 and BR 36 may have been exposed to measles.
While the risk is believed to be low, Toronto Public Health’s asking anyone on those flights to check their immunization record or speak with their doctor.
Those born before 1970 are considered protected against measles.
Passengers on those two flights are also asked to watch for symptoms of measles until the 29th (21 days after possible exposure).
They include a high fever, a cough, runny nose, sore eyes, sensitivity to light and a red rash lasting four to seven days.
