Health authorities have issued an alert for a range of public locations around Adelaide after a case of measles was detected in a baby.

SA Health said the infant is in a stable condition in hospital.

It said the infant, from metropolitan South Australia, had recently returned from overseas but was not infectious during the flight to Australia.

It is the second case of measles in South Australia this year, compared to three cases recorded last year.

SA Health said the infant was in public locations across Adelaide’s CBD and suburbs between Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 23.

The baby was also at a winery in McLaren Vale on March 16.

Symptoms of measles start with fever, cough, runny nose, and sore eyes, followed by a blotchy rash which usually begins on the head and then spreads down the body.

SA Health said most measles cases in Australia occur in overseas visitors and returning residents who did not have two doses of the measles vaccine.

The measles vaccination is part of the National Immunisation Program at 12 months and 18 months of age.
