People who travelled on the same plane and train, and those in the international terminal - (including the baggage carousel, customs, and arrivals areas) between 7:40pm and 9:30pm should be alert for signs and symptoms of measles until June 20, NSW Health said on Thursday.

It can take up to 18 days for symptoms to appear following exposure to a person with measles.

The local public health unit is working with medical services visited by the man to contact people directly who may have been present at the same time.

This alert brings the total number of measles cases in NSW to 36, including eight children under the age of five.

NSW Health director of communicable diseases, Dr Vicky Sheppeard, said none of the locations visited by the man pose an ongoing risk.

Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport (also known as Western Sydney Airport ) is the site for the second Sydney airport , located within the suburb of Badgerys Creek. The Airport is planned to have 24 hour and curfew-free operations.

“Symptoms to watch out for include fever, sore eyes and a cough followed three or four days later by a red, blotchy rash that spreads from the head to the rest of the body,” Dr Sheppeard said.

“Anyone who develops symptoms of measles should phone their GP to ensure they don’t wait with other patients before seeing their doctor.”

It is not known if the man was fully vaccinated against measles.

The measles-mumps-rubella vaccine was free for anyone born during or after 1966 who has not already had two doses.

“If you’re unsure whether you’ve had two doses, it’s safe to have another,” Dr Sheppeard said.

Measles is spread in the air through coughing or sneezing by someone with the disease.

The risk of infection is low in fully-vaccinated people, but NSW Health urged anyone who comes into contact with someone who has measles to look out for symptoms.

They should limit their exposure to others and seek medical care if symptoms develop. Two doses of measles vaccine provide lifelong protection in 99 out of 100 people.

More than 95 per cent of five-year-olds in NSW are vaccinated against measles.
