    A Middlesex County resident who went into Rosalita’s Roadside Cantina on Highway 9 in Marlboro Township on Friday, April 19 had a “highly suspect case of measles,” the New Jersey Department of Health said on Monday.

    Anyone who visited the restaurant between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on April 19 may have been exposed, according to the department.

    “The department is working in collaboration with the Middlesex County Office of Health Services to identify additional exposures that could have occurred,” it noted.
