Newark Airport Passengers Warned Of Measles Case

Idiot scaffolders mess around on site

A transformer fire underneath Newark Liberty Airport caused evacuations in part of the terminal Friday, officials said. The woman was identified as an Indiana University (IU) student.

The Terminal C-1 wing was evacuated but the rest of the terminal operated normally, including Terminals A and B, but because of weather conditions, the airport tells passengers to expect weather-related delays.

Passengers traveling through Newark Airport in New Jersey were issued a measles exposure warning on Friday after the Department of Health confirmed one person with the highly contagious disease had been there ten days ago. New Jersey health departments are also working to notify passengers who were potentially exposed on the infected passenger's flight.

Indiana University officials, meanwhile, said they are also trying to identify and notify anyone who may have been in close contact with the student, whose diagnosis was confirmed on January 6.

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey says a transformer fire in a manhole on a restricted road outside Terminal C cut power to the building around 11:15 a.m. Emergency generators provided partial power. Measles can be easily spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes or when they come in contact with mucus or saliva from an infected person.

The Department of Health recommends calling a healthcare provider before going to an office or the emergency department to protect other patients and staff from possible infection.
