Person With Measles Visits Super Bowl Village, Others May Have Been Infected

The Indiana State Health Department has confirmed a person infected with Measles visited the Super Bowl Village sometime last week, possibly on Friday. An estimated 250,000 people had been at the location throughout the day. The person never visited any indoor Super Bowl event, though it still remains unclear if that person attended the Super Bowl Celebration.

Two additional cases have since been confirmed in Indiana. Indiana State health officials are asking everyone, especially those who were at the Super Bowl Village on Friday, to check your family’s medical records and make sure everyone’s immunizations are up to date.

During the next Superbowl, there should be a health check before visitors can come in.

Now this is very dangerous! The people suffering from infectious diseases should be quarantined. They should not be allowed in the public places, where the chances of passing on the infection to others is quite high.
