This is the same case of measles that health officials in Virginia say traveled through Dulles Airport. The woman traveled to the Washington metro area from New Mexico. She arrived at Dulles Airport on Feb. 20 and two days later flew out of the area from Thurgood Marshall Airport near Baltimore.

D.C. health officials say riders on the D1 or D6 bus on Feb. 21 from Georgetown toward Columbia Heights between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. may have been exposed to measles.

They also say those taking the S2 or S4 bus from Columbia Heights to Georgetown between 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., on Feb. 21 may have also been exposed. They're also warning anyone who was at the Potbelly's Sandwich Shop at 1400 Irving Street, Northwest, on that day between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. of the potential for exposure.

Officials say anyone exposed to a person diagnosed with Measles should verify that they have received two doses of the measles vaccine.
