New York state health officials are warning against possible measles exposures in Saratoga and Warren Counties.

The Department of Health announced Sunday that a healthcare worker employed by Hudson Headwaters was confirmed to have the disease.

In addition to working at Hudson Headwaters, officials say the individual spent time at a Home Depot store and restaurant in Saratoga Springs and a Warren County medical practice between June 5th and 8th.

A person is unlikely to contract measles if they were born before January 1, 1957, have received two doses of the MMR vaccine, or have a lab test confirming immunity.

Officials say anyone who visited the following locations may have been exposed:

  • Home Depot (garden section of store), 3043 Route 50, Saratoga Springs, N.Y. between 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. on June 5, 2017.
  • Hudson Headwaters Health Network – Warrensburg Health Center, 3767 Main St., Warrensburg, N.Y. between 7:25 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. on June 6, 2017.
  • Hudson Headwaters Health Network, 9 Carey Rd., Queensbury, N.Y. between 7:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. on June 7, 2017.
