PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon health officials say three more measles cases have been confirmed in Multnomah County, which is home to Portland.

Officials say those people were in close contact with the only other person confirmed to have the measles in Multnomah County. Officials say they had stayed at home and in contact with health officials.

The Oregon person who tested positive Jan. 25 had been in contact with someone from southwest Washington in Clark County, who was contagious with measles.
