Clark County Public Health has identified 35 confirmed cases and 11 suspected cases since January 1, when it first began investigating the outbreak.
And at least 30 of the infections are people who haven't had the measles vaccination, a lot of them children between the ages of one and ten.
Once upon a time, the United States had eliminated the measles, but outbreaks have increased as the anti-vaccine movement takes hold - and 18 states now allow for non-medical "philosophical" vaccination exemptions.
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) heath leaders say measles is so contagious that if one person has it, 90 percent of people close to that person who are not immune also become infected.
A news release on the governor's website says the Washington State Department of Health, or DOH, has implemented an infectious disease incident management structure so it can manage the public health aspects of the outbreak through investigations and lab testing. It's spread through those common winter companions, sneezing and coughing.

Dr Tom Tasker, GP and chair of NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, said: "Anyone who has not had two doses of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccination is at risk, and children are especially vulnerable".
Those who are unvaccinated, travel internationally to developing countries or have a vitamin A deficiency are more likely to catch the disease.
Anyone who suspects they may have the measles should call ahead before coming to a clinic or emergency department, to avoid exposing others to the virus, Castrodale said.
In Clark County, however, vaccination rates have been dropping.
Those who may have been exposed should watch for early symptoms of fever and malaise and then a rash starting on the head and moving down the body. One dose of measles vaccine is about 93% effective at preventing measles if exposed to the virus. This myth was perpetuated thanks to a small 1998 study which used false data to suggest a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. However, the fractured state of the public health system in the USA allows millions of parents to be granted exemptions by states and localities from their children receiving the MMR vaccine.
