RICHMOND HILL, Ont. - Health officials say people who visited Fountain Medical and Wellness Centre in Richmond Hill, Ont., earlier this month may have been exposed to measles.

The agency previously said anyone who visited other health-care centres around the region could have been exposed.

But it now says that those who visited Fountain Medical and Wellness Centre on April 10 or 12, and Nando s Restaurant on April 10 could be at risk and should talk to a doctor.

Measles symptoms can appear between seven and 18 days after contact with an infected individual and may begin with a cough, runny nose, fever, red watery eyes and small spots with a white centre inside the mouth.
