Three more people, at least two of whom were unvaccinated, have come down with measles after a Cobb County middle school student was diagnosed, health officials said Friday. Testing of a possible fourth case is underway.
These individuals may have exposed other people to measles between Oct. 30 and Wednesday, Nov. 13, the Georgia Department of Public Health said. The third person's vaccine history is unclear.
Parents of students at Mabry Middle School were notified via email by the Cobb and Douglas Public Health Department about a possible exposure, and students who had not been vaccinated were encouraged not to return to school until Nov. 25, the letter said.
"It is highly likely these cases are all related, but the investigation into any linkage is ongoing at this time," DPH said in a news release.
