Everyone who went to this Kings of Leon concert might have measles

Well, some people anyway.

THE WASHINGTON STATE Department of Health is warning people who attended a Kings of Leon concert in Seattle last month that they may have been exposed to measles.

The department has released a document detailing the movements of an infected woman who went to the gig before she became aware of her symptoms.

The woman became contagious on 26 March, according to NPR, and went to work, went out to eat, went shopping, went to Starbucks… and went to the concert on 28 March.

Washington health officials have asked anyone who thinks they may have been in the same vicinity as the women – including the thousands who went to see Kings of Leon – to confirm that they have been vaccinated against measles.

People who are unvaccinated, aren’t sure if they’re immune, and develop an illness with fever or unexplained rash should consult a health care professional immediately.

The four members of Kings of Leon were also urged to check their vaccination status, according to The Guardian.
