If you or someone you know attended the WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony last week in New Orleans they may have been exposed to the measles virus.

A tourist, with measles, reportedly attended the event last Friday night at the Smoothie King Center and may have exposed fans to the virus.

Now, the Louisiana Department of Health is contacting fans who attended the same event to inform them of the possibility of being exposed.

Here are some of the symptoms associated with the virus: a runny nose, cough, fever, and eventually progress into white spots on the inside of your mouth. Rashes may begin to show up your skin too.

The tourist, who attended the WWE festivities, is from the UK and health officials are now trying to track where he may have visited and stayed while in New Orleans.

Officials do NOT fear an outback at this moment. However, if you know of anyone who attended the event last Friday, please share this story with them via your social media accounts.
