According the The Oregonian, Deschutes County Health Services announced on Monday that it is awaiting test results to confirm the case of measles that may have exposed visitors to Mountain Air trampoline park on Jan. 19 and Juniper Swim and Fitness Center on Jan. 20.

The potential infection is linked to an outbreak in Vancouver (Wash.) area, which has led to more than 30 confirmed cases as of Monday.
