The date and time of exposure at the Central York Middle and High School were during open house events, according to the district.

Information about the measles exposure alert was posted on twitter with a link with more details on the district’s website.

It notes that health officials told them the risk of infection vanishes within two hours after the person with the measles leaves an area since the disease is transmitted by air. The post said because of this, there was no risk to anyone who wasn’t at the schools during the exposure times.

The Department of Health said if you have been properly vaccinated the risk of getting the disease is small.

The first case of the measles that affected people in York County was reported last month.

A woman who claims to be that patient said she had been vaccinated.

Right now, 14 cases of the measles have been confirmed in Pennsylvania.

More than 1,200 cases have been reported in the U.S. this year.
