KDHE cites other possible measles points

Posted: Updated:

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas health officials have identified other recent points of potential measles exposure in Wichita.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says a cook at the restaurant, Sumo by Nambara, was reported as a new measles case on Thursday. The employee has been off since Sunday. The health department says anyone who dined at the restaurant on July 11 or 12 is at risk for developing measles.

KDHE says people attending an informal softball tournament at the South Lakes Softball Complex on July 4 also may have been exposed to the disease. Eight teams from Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Texas attended the tournament.

The potential exposure comes from a previously identified case, the KDHE said, but no confirmed cases have been linked to this event.
