According to the Lansing State Journal, there are no cases of measles in the Lansing area as of Monday afternoon.

However, 18 confirmed cases in Oakland County and outbreaks across the U.S. still should concern area residents, according to Ingham County Health Officer Linda Vail.

Vail said that we travel, we get on planes, we go places.  It can come from the county next to you or it can come from all the way across the country.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services added 18 places to a list of locations where someone could have been exposed to measles in Oakland County.

That list includes medical centers, drug and hardware stores, religious facilities, a car wash, and more.
