Marissa Armstrong with Clark County Public Health said that people with measles symptoms should consult their doctor before visiting a clinic. "We really do not want people just to appear in emergency hospitals, emergency rooms or doctors' offices, because then there might be other people in the waiting room who could be exposed," she said. "We really want to call people ahead and plan with their provider before they seek help."
