People are being urged to be vigilant if they suspect they could have measles after a new case was confirmed in Auckland late last week.
Auckland Regional Public Health Service said it believed the person might have caught measles while on a recent trip to Melbourne.
Symptoms include a red rash that starts on the face and moves to the rest of the body, runny nose, cough, sore eyes or fever.
Anyone with these symptoms should seek immediate medical help and are advised to phone ahead to minimise the spread of infection.
