Measles is spread through coughing and sneezing, close personal contact or direct contact with infected nasal or throat secretions.

Measles is infectious from 4 days before rash onset until 4 full days after the rash appears.

In health care settings, suspected measles cases should be triaged and isolated immediately to protect other patients.
