DALLAS (KRLD) - 350 passengers exposed to measles on board Southwest flights last month have a clean bill of health.

The state health department says no cases of measles have been reported in these last three weeks. That's the maximum amount of time for symptoms to show.

One person sick with measles was on board four different flights, exposing everyone on board. Those planes passed through Dallas, Houston and Harlingen on August 21st and 22nd. 

The health department had the job of contacting everyone on board all the flights to tell them to watch for symptoms.
