For those of you who live in Mississauga, there's a chance you were exposed to the measles virus if you attended a trampoline park this month.

Peel Public Health says a person who attended the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park last Sunday (March 23rd) has been diagnosed with measles.

The person was at the park on 3636 Hawkestone Road between 12:30 and 4:30 in the afternoon.

The measles exposure at Sky Zone is linked to other exposure sites in Hamilton and Halton region.

Measles is highly contagious and spreads easily to those who have compromised or vulnerable immune systems.Those most at risk include babies under the age of one,  and pregnant women.

If you think you may have been exposed to it Peel public health ask you to watch for symptoms of measles until April 12 (21 days after possible exposure). These include a high fever; cold-like symptoms (cough/runny nose); sore eyes or sensitivity to light; small spots with a white centre on the inside of the mouth; and a red rash lasting four to seven days.

You're also asked to check your immunization records to make sure you and your children have had two doses of the measles vaccine (MMR or MMRV). Your child's immunization record (yellow card) or your doctor can provide you with this information. A second dose of measles vaccine is recommended for anyone born after 1969.

Concerned residents should visit Peelregion.ca/health for news and alerts about measles. For more information, contact Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700.
