INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - State health officials have confirmed a case of measles in northeastern Indiana.

The Indiana State Department of Health says it’s working with local health departments to identify anyone who may have been exposed to the patient at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital Urgent Care in Angola on March 30.

It says the patient also visited three locations in Sturgis, Michigan, on March 31: Holy Angels Catholic Church, San Miguel Grocery and the Walmart Supercenter.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 387 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 15 states this year through the end of March. Michigan health officials on Friday said that state has 39 confirmed cases this year, including 38 in Oakland County, near Detroit.

Indiana had one confirmed measles case in 2018.
