  • Description:
    Time is of the essence when measles is concerned. Responding to a measles outbreak can involve working 24/7. Measles is a highly contagious disease and can cause severe illness, even death.

    What started as a routine call to the Los Angeles Quarantine Station (LAQS) (www.cdc.gov/quarantine/ stations/los-angeles.html) involving one teenage refugee with measles quickly unfolded into an event where exposed passengers and refugees traveled to many states. Refugee travel from Malaysia to the United States was suspended for several weeks.
