Yesterday came news that a fourth case of measles in Las Vegas was confirmed by the Southern Nevada Health District and the employee works in a restaurant. An "under-immunized adult" who works at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House at the MGM Grand has the highly contagious disease.

The restaurant issued a statement about the server who was diagnosed with measles:

“A server from Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House was diagnosed Tuesday, February 10, with measles. The server was last in the restaurant on Saturday, February 7, and has not been on site since then. The health and safety of both our guests and employees is of the utmost importance to us. We are working closely with the Southern Nevada Health District and MGM Grand to take all precautions necessary to protect the well-being of our guests and employees. The Southern Nevada Health District is advising those guests who dined at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House after 4 p.m. between Wednesday, February 4, and Saturday, February 7, and who are not fully immunized against measles, to contact their health-care providers.”

Symptoms of measles include high fever, runny nose, coughing, watery red eyes, and/or a rash. For a good primer on the measles, head over to Vox.
