The fourth King County person confirmed with measles was in public locations in Renton before being diagnosed, according to Public Health Seattle and King County.

The King County resident, a woman in her mid-30s, brings the total recent measles count to seven in the state, and four in King County in the last month.

The woman was in Valley Family Medicine Clinic, a clinic operated by Valley Medical Center Family Medicine Residency, located at 3915 Talbot Rd. S., on May 14 and May 15. Potential exposure times were about 10:40 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

According to Public Health, anyone at those locations during that time could have been exposed to measles. The times listed include two hours after the person left.
