WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia officials say there’s been a confirmed case of measles in the city.

Michael Czin, a spokesman for Mayor Muriel Bowser, says the case is isolated and has been linked to international travel. He says it’s unrelated to a recent outbreak of measles in California that is believed to have started at Disneyland.

The case was confirmed by the city’s health department. Measles was last reported in the district in 2012.

Czin says the mayor is encouraging residents to get vaccinated against the disease.
