ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Orlando area has a confirmed case of measles.

Orange County health officials said Thursday that a British tourist was diagnosed with the highly-contagious illness.

The patient was exposed to measles in the United Kingdom before taking a trip to Florida.

Health officials say the patient visited numerous tourist attractions in central Florida last week.

They advise that anybody who develops a rash-like illness should seek medical care. Symptoms include a blotchy rash, fever, cough, runny nose and a run-down feeling.

Measles is rare in the United States but is still present in Europe, Asia and Africa.
