Two measles cases reported in Sedgwick County by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment have been linked to a worker at an East Wichita restaurant.
The brother of the owner of Sal's Japanese steakhouse, David Salvador, says the restaurant is operating as usual tonight. Salvador told Eyewitness News that the Sedgwick County Health Department notified them a female server working at Sal's had the illness.
We now know a recent measles diagnosis of an infant has been traced back to the restaurant. The mother of the infant who contracted measles confirms the KDHE notified them of the link.
The infant attended a Wichita daycare center. The infant rooms have since been closed temporarily at Princeton Children's Center because infants cannot receive the vaccination.
The health department says measles can be spread to others from 4 days before to 4 days after the rash appears.
