Health officials say the incubation period for measles is over.

In early February, the Dept. of Health says an 11-month-old boy brought the disease back to Oahu from the Philippines. A second case, involving a toddler who sat in the same doctor’s office as the baby, was confirmed a few weeks later.

Health officials say no new cases have been reported since then.

The incubation period for measles is between seven and 21 days.
