Public health officials are investigating eight confirmed cases of measles in south King and Pierce counties.

According to officials, health agencies have reported seven confirmed cases and another probable case that occurred between June 10 and June 22.

The cases of measles are among members of the same extended family, which are linked to another case. A person returned to the United States from the Pacific Islands on May 26 with measles.

The known public exposures occurred at several MultiCare health care facilities, where the infected individuals were treated, including a hospital in Tacoma.

As of Thursday, five people have sought care at the following facilities and were later identified as having measles.

They may have exposed others to the virus. (Yeah, you think?)

Here are the details about the exposures:
