Dr Vicky Sheppeard, Director of Communicable Diseases at NSW Health said that measles is highly contagious among people who are not fully immunised. "Measles is highly infectious and is spread through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms can include fever, tiredness, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes which usually last for several days before a red, blotchy rash appears. Complications can range from an ear infection to pneumonia or swelling of the brain," Dr Sheppeard said.
She advised that anyone who participated in or attended the competition be alert for symptoms of measles. The time from exposure to the onset of symptoms is typically around 10 days but can be as long as 18 days, so there may be other cases in the community now, or secondary cases could be developing in the contacts of people who attended the event.
Dr Sheppeard advised those who attended the event and have developed symptoms of measles to contact their local public health unit or phone ahead to their local doctor if requiring medical attention. "If you have symptoms of measles please phone ahead when seeking medical attention to ensure you don't share the waiting area with other patients," Dr Sheppeard said.
Back to school asthma warning

NSW Health's Senior Environmental Health Policy Officer, Dr Vicky Sheppeard, said research has shown that in previous years visits to hospitals for asthma have peaked in February - about two weeks after school starts.
"We have seen a very high number of emergency visits and admissions for children suffering from asthma in February compared to other months in the year.
"Data since 1993 shows dramatic rises in emergency department presentations for asthma every two to three years in NSW with peaks in 1996, 1999 and 2001."
"At this stage we are unable to predict which years an asthma peak is likely to occur, therefore it is vital that parents of children with asthma are aware of the potential increased risk," said Dr Sheppeard.

NSW Director of Communicable Diseases, Dr Vicky Sheppeard, said the next few weeks will be ideal breeding conditions for mosquitoes which carry a range of human diseases like Ross River virus, Barmah Forest virus, Kunjin virus, and Murray Valley Encephalitis virus. "These infections can cause symptoms including tiredness, rash, fever, and sore and swollen joints. The symptoms usually resolve after several days but some people may experience these symptoms for weeks or even months," Dr Sheppeard said. "Infection with Kunjin or Murray Valley Encephalitis can also cause more severe effects such as encephalitis." "While the number of reported human cases of mosquito borne infections have not been very high so far this year, with 47 cases of Ross River virus and 28 cases of Barmah Forest virus notified in January and February 2014, case numbers usually rise in the autumn months," Dr Sheppeard said.

Manager of the Communicable Diseases and Immunisation Centre for Population Health, Dr Vicky Sheppeard, says many people aged 25 to 45 aren't protected from the potentially deadly disease because they haven't had the second booster vaccination.
"The first vaccination is given at one year of age and the second is given at four, so babies under one, as well as children and adults who haven't received two doses of the vaccine are highly susceptible to the disease," Dr Sheppeard said.
Though measles symptoms may seem harmless, the disease can lead to pneumonia and in more serious cases, encephalitis.
"It starts with a fever, cough and sore red eyes followed by a rash three or four days later," Dr Sheppeard explained.
