Disney Crew-Member Catches Measles

August 30, 2002
A "cast member" -- whoops, we mean crew-member -- on Disney Wonder has come down with measles and the cruise line, in a peremptory strike, has sent out some 15,000 letters to past and future passengers. The letters, which went both to those who were on the August 4 cruise (during which the crew member was treated for measles) and those who are sailing within a month of that date, basically just warn them of the mini-outbreak. Nobody beyond the one crew member, the company reports, has been afflicted and Americans typically receive a measles vaccination as a matter of course.
