New York health officials are warning the public about a possible exposure to measles after an Australian tourist was confirmed to have the disease while visiting parts of the state earlier this month. Measles, a highly contagious virus, can cause serious illness, and even death. As of Monday, the state health department has not reported any additional cases of measles in New York.
