Important notice

Did you visit Prahran Aquatic Centre on Friday 11 January between 1pm and 4pm?

A health alert has been issued by the Victorian Government after a man who visited the centre during this time was diagnosed with measles – we have been advised that he may have been infectious at the time.

Measles is a very contagious viral illness that causes a skin rash and fever, it is rare in Australia because of the widespread use of the measles vaccine but anyone who was at the centre during that time with any of these symptoms should seek medical advice immediately: fever, general discomfort, runny nose, dry cough, sore and red eyes (conjunctivitis), red and bluish spots inside the mouth or a red and blotchy skin rash.
