Another case of the measles has been identified in the Lower Mainland.
The sick person lives in the Fraser Health region, the authority said late Tuesday, and went to multiple public places while infectious.
Anyone who was in the following places at the posted times may have been exposed, and should review their immunization records and watch for signs of the virus.
Saturday, April 13
- International terminal at the Vancouver International Airport between 10:25 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Japan Airlines flight JL018 from Tokyo to Vancouver

Public health officials are following up with people who were found to have been exposed to the virus.
The person got sick while out of the country, and is not linked to the outbreak declared earlier this year that stemmed from a group of French-language schools in Vancouver. It is the 27th case of measles in B.C.
Anyone who thinks they may have measles is asked to call their doctor before heading in to see them.
Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, and red eyes, followed a few days later by a rash that starts on the face and spreads to the chest.
Vaccinations are free from your family doctor, walk-in clinic, urgent primary care centre, and possibly your pharmacist.
