County declares public health emergency due to measles outbreak

Published Date

Vancouver, Wash. – Clark County Council Chair Eileen Quiring declared on Friday a public health emergency in response to the measles outbreak.

The process is necessary to ensure Public Health has adequate resources to continue its response. The declaration enables Public Health to have access to additional resources outside of our regional area.

Public Health is continuing to identify and contact potential measles cases, and identify possible locations of public exposure. Public Health will continue to provide daily updates on the investigation on the measles investigation webpage.
