Hundreds may have been exposed

Hundreds of Massachusetts residents may have been inadvertently exposed to measles, a highly contagious disease, while visiting two hospitals in Greater Boston last month, state health officials said Tuesday evening.

The alert covers anyone who may be showing early symptoms of the disease, which resembles a cold at first, and visited Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston between Aug. 17 -23 or MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham on Aug. 23 and 24.
