Measles Update

Levin has recently had several cases of measles in primary and secondary schools.  We have not had any confirmed cases in the Ōtaki area.  The symptoms for measles are high fever, cough, runny nose, sore watery eyes, feeling sick and/or a red blotchy rash around the upper neck/face.  If your child experiences these symptoms, please take them to the doctor.  Most children have been vaccinated with the MMR vaccine at pre-school age.
