Indiana Health dept. confirms 15th measles case

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana health officials say they've confirmed a 15th case of measles in central Indiana.

Indiana State Department of Health issued a news release confirming the latest case without specifying where the person resides. All of the previous cases had been in Boone and Hamilton counties north of Indianapolis.

The agency said the latest case doesn't pose an increased risk of spreading the highly contagious respiratory disease to others because the individual has been in self-isolation since being exposed the virus.
