Measles exposure sites pinpointed in Framingham


FRAMINGHAM (AP) -- Framingham officials are releasing new details about where people may have been exposed to two measles cases confirmed by the state last week.

City public health director Steven Ward said Tuesday one person was in the Samba restaurant in Framingham on Feb. 15 between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. The city said earlier that person also was in Trader Joe's Framingham store Feb. 15 and 16, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Vaccination clinics have been held at those locations.

Ward said the second person may have exposed people at a private corporation which has notified those affected and taken steps to ensure they are vaccinated. A spokeswoman for Bose Corp. said the case was at one of its Framingham facilities and the company has followed state and local guidelines to protect and inform employees.
