Cowlitz County Measles: Update 2/21/2019
This page is updated one time each business day, after 4:00 pm

There are currently NO confirmed measles cases in Cowlitz County. 

Cowlitz County Health & Human Services is urging anyone who thinks they have been exposed at an identified out of county location and believes they have symptoms of measles to CALL their health care provider PRIOR to visiting the medical office to make a plan that avoids exposing others in the waiting room. 

If you have been exposed to measles and feel ill, stay home to help prevent the spread of the disease and contact your healthcare provider. 

People who believe they have symptoms of measles should not go directly to medical offices, urgent care centers or emergency departments (unless experiencing a medical emergency) without calling in advance.
