UPDATE: MEASLES BEING TRACKED, COMES AS NO SURPRISE TO STATE HEALTH OFFICIALS.

The Le Sueur County cases are linked to four previously reported cases in Crow Wing County through a family gathering that occurred somewhere in the state, and so was not a surprise, according to health officials.

The first Crow Wing County case is linked to the ongoing outbreak in the metro area because a child had visited places in Hennepin County, which is where it all began. On Friday, state health officials announced that three siblings of the initial Crow Wing County case had also become sickened as well.

It is strongly advised that you check your vaccination records and if you have not been, get vaccinated.
