Measles – What’s all the fuss about?

Measles – What’s all the fuss about?

By Yolo County Health Officer Constance Caldwell, M.D.
January 29, 2015

There has been a lot in the news about a recent outbreak of measles linked to a Disney amusement park in Orange County, with now over 70 cases confirmed in California and several in other states as well.  What is measles and who is at risk?  Who exactly needs to be vaccinated?

Measles is a very contagious disease caused by a virus.  It begins with fever, followed by cough, runny nose, sore throat and pink eyes, and then a whole body rash.  When someone with measles coughs or sneezes, the droplets are spread in the air and stay very infectious for up to 2 hours.  People are contagious from 4 days before they develop rash to 4 days after the rash starts.

Yolo County Homeless Count January 27-29

Yolo County Homeless Count January 27-29

Yolo County will be conducting its 2015 homeless point-in-time count during the week of January 26.  Donations of needed items to be distributed to people experiencing homelessness during the count (i.e. gift cards in small denominations; warm gloves, socks and hats; personal hygiene products) are being accepted by several local homeless service providers.

The 2015 homeless point-in-time count is a survey that communities conduct every two years to identify the number of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals living in Yolo County. The survey is also designed to collect information regarding the characteristics and needs of people experiencing homelessness. The count is an activity mandated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development for communities that receive federal homeless funding, and nearly every community in the country will be conducting a similar count during the last ten days of January.
