Dd father has phoned and he has measles. Dd has ben with him for a few days. Dd has had the mmr so she will be ok. But i am not sure how the mmr works. Will she carry the measles virus and pass it on to us.

The MMR is good but not infallible. Some children who have the MMR will still go on to catch measles if they have been in close contact with an infectious person. Please watch her carefully and keep an eye out for high temp and rash.
I do not know about viral carriers and the possibilities of passing it on to others but hopefully someone will give you more advice soon.
Hope it blows over and she and you all will be fine x
