Fraser Health says anyone on the flight needs to check their immunization status, particularly if you’re born after 1970.
It can take about 10 days for symptoms to develop after being exposed. Some of the symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, followed by a rash that can last at least three days.
