SEATTLE (AP) - King County public health officials say an international traveler who developed a confirmed case of measles was in several public areas of the county during the contagious period.

Public Health Seattle and King County says the traveler. who was from Brazil, was likely exposed in their home country. 

Before receiving the measles diagnosis, the traveler was in the downtown Seattle Sheraton Hotel's common areas on the morning of Jan. 25 and at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport main terminal and Concourse D between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Jan. 25.

Health officials say anyone at those locations at those times who is not immune to measles was possibly exposed. The most likely time such a person would become sick would be between Feb. 1 and Feb. 15.

The case is not related to a recent outbreak linked to Disney's Southern California parks.
