Measles concerns temporarily closed an urgent-care clinic Monday morning, just a few hours after county health officials announced that three more cases of the disease had been confirmed during the weekend.

Sharp HealthCare said the Sharp Rees-Stealy Urgent Care facility at 16950 Via Tazon was shut down after a patient suspected of a measles infection entered the premises at 10:30 a.m. The patient was discharged at 1:15 p.m., and the center is expected to reopen at 3:30 p.m. Monday.
