A second case of measles has been confirmed in the Portland metro area.
Multnomah County health officials say the person diagnosed Friday had been in close contact with a person diagnosed last week.
The county said the Health Department's Communicable Disease Services has alerted the second person and is making sure the person stays at home and away from other people.
The first case was confirmed on June 27. Officials say it occurred in a person who spent time at a Gresham childcare center.
The person is believed to have been infected with measles while traveling outside the country. Officials say it was the first case reported in the Portland metro area since 2014.
Anyone with questions about measles infections or the measles vaccine should call their primary care provider or their local county health department.
