The Texas Department of State Health Services is alerting people who were at the ShowBiz Cinemas in Waxahachie on Jan. 9, 2018 that they may have been exposed to measles. A customer was sick with measles while attending a movie, so anyone else there that day should monitor themselves for a rash or any other measles symptoms through Jan. 30. Any possible exposure at the theater at 108 Broadhead Road, occurred only that day, and there’s no longer any risk there, according to TDSHS. Measles is a

highly contagious respiratory illness spread by contact with an infected person through coughing and sneezing. Measles is so contagious that if someone has it, 90 percent of the people around that person who are not immune will also become infected. The measles vaccine is very effective, about 97 percent after two doses, but a few people who are vaccinated can still get sick, so even vaccinated people should monitor for symptoms.  READ MORE
