Urgent public health alert – measles

Queensland Health has requested that principals read the Urgent public health alert - Measles outbreaks communique and act upon this information as required. There have been 24 people notified with highly infectious measles this year, three of whom were school-aged. Principals should refer to their legislated responsibilities within the Management of prescribed contagious conditions procedure to minimise the spread of vaccine preventable measles.
