Those who dine at a Mexican restaurant in Englishtown earlier this month warned the New Jersey Department of Health on Monday.
An unnamed resident of Middlesex County who is "susceptible to the infectious disease" visited Rosalita's Roadside Cantina on April 19 between 11:30 and 15:30 on Route 9 North.
People who visited the restaurant during this time were asked to call their doctor.
Persons who have not been vaccinated or not I had no measles at risk of contracting the disease, which usually starts with symptoms such as fever, cough and a rash that usually starts on the face.
These symptoms may not develop until May 1
Measles can also cause serious complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis, causing brain swelling and lead to miscarriage, prematurity or low birth weight in middle women, the CDC said.
It can spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes and people get sick when they come into contact with mucus or saliva from an infected person, officials said.
The Department They examined if there was a link between this latest potential case of measles and the ongoing outbreak of Ocean County, which has sickened 13 people across the state or any outbreaks in other states.
State health officials are also working with the Middlesex County Office of Health Services to see if the resident has visited other places where people may have been exposed.
