Outbreak at Disney Show

A Cincinnati individual infected with measles unknowingly put others at risk of contracting the highly contagious disease during a visit to a Disney on Ice production. Measles, a concerning infectious disease, can spread rapidly in settings where people gather closely, such as entertainment venues that host Disney on Ice productions. The Dayton Daily News reports,

“Anyone at the performance of Disney on Ice at the Heritage Bank Center, located at 100 Broadway in Cincinnati, at 7 p.m. on March 8 or visited the Sugarcreek Health Center, located at 6438 Wilmington Pike in Dayton, from 12:55 p.m. to 4 p.m. on March 13 could have been exposed to measles.

People who were at either of those locations during those time frames should call their local health department so they can assess your vaccination status, provide information regarding signs and symptoms of measles, and inform you of the next steps to keep you and others protected, Public Health said.”

The incident highlights the importance of staying vigilant and informed about potential exposure to measles in public spaces, especially for individuals who may not be vaccinated against the virus. This unfortunate situation serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing challenges posed by preventable diseases like measles in public settings, emphasizing the critical role of vaccination and disease control measures in safeguarding public health.
