BOSTON (CBS) — Health care officials are working to contain the potential spread of measles in Boston’s Back Bay.

A worker at the French consulate was diagnosed with the highly contagious infection.

As many as 2,000 people work at the Park Square building where the consulate is.

Not everyone is up to date on their shots, and nurses were vaccinating those workers for measles on Wednesday.

Symptoms like a cough, runny nose, fever and rash can appear up to 12 days after exposure.
