Following the measles outbreak in metro Detroit, there is now at least one confirmed case in northern Indiana. It is unrelated to the southeast Michigan cases. The Indiana State Department of Health is consulting with health officials in both Michigan and Texas due the risk of exposure being found in both states. ISDH says they’re working with local health departments and doctors in LaGrange and Steuben counties to identify anyone in Indiana who may have been exposed to the person confirmed to have the illness.
There are three locations in Michigan, all in Sturgis, where people may have been exposed on Sunday, March 31. Those are Holy Angels Catholic Church, San Miguel Grocery, and the Walmart Supercenter. The possible exposures in Indiana were at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital Urgent Care in Angola on the afternoon of Saturday, March 30 and the Cameron Memorial Community Hospital Laboratory that evening.
