Measles Outbreak in Alberta - April 2014
As you may be aware, a number of measles cases have been identified in Alberta since last fall, with these cases mainly involving unimmunized individuals. School jurisdictions across the province have been working with Alberta Education in supporting the efforts of Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services to respond to these outbreaks.
Given the significant resurgence of measles that has occurred in the last few weeks, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health has asked Alberta Education to provide information to school jurisdictions to share with our staff and parents.
