Measles

Hi, I have a staff member who appears to have measles - mega red spots all over her face &  neck, watery eyes &  flu like symptoms. Should she be sent home? What treatment should be prescribed?

Hallo Karen
Yes, she should go home and see a doctor as adults run the risk of developing a type of pneumonia from measles.
