PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona health officials say they’ve confirmed one new case of measles in Pinal County.
State Department of Health Services officials said Wednesday that the tally of confirmed new cases of measles now stands at 18 with all but one in Pinal County. The other case is in Maricopa County.
The department says the new case is tied to a private detention center in Eloy, like all the other Pinal County cases.
Health officials say the new measles case doesn’t pose a risk to the public.
They say the Maricopa County person is no longer infectious and also does not pose a risk to the public.
The first two cases of the highly contagious virus were reported on May 26.
