L.A. County health officials confirm 19th local measles case

LOS ANGELES (KUSI) – A local resident with a confirmed case of measles spent a day at Disneyland and visited several other locations, according to county health officials, who urged people to contact a health care provider if they think they may have been exposed.

Health officials said the person may have exposed others at various locations on Oct. 15-17.

Those locations are:

— 7:20 to 9:35 a.m. Oct. 15 at Starbucks, 2215 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles;

— 7:50 to 10 a.m. Oct. 16 at Starbucks, 3006 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles;

— 9:15 a.m to 8:35 p.m. Oct. 16 at Disneyland in Anaheim; and

— 5:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 at Factor’s Famous Deli, 9420 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles.

Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed at those locations should review their immunization records to determine if they are protected, and if not, call a health care provider. People who are exposed can develop measles up to 21 days after exposure.

The latest case brings to 19 the number of measles infections among county residents this year, in addition to 11 non-resident cases that traveled through the county — excluding Long Beach and Pasadena, which have their own health departments and track their own cases.
