LAX airport, UCLA and California State University, Los Angeles have all been identified by Los Angeles County Public Health Department as possible measles exposure sites, according to an April 22 report. A restaurant in La Cañada Flintridge and a restaurant in Glendale have also been named as possible sites. The earliest exposure was reported on April 1 and the last recorded was April 13.
The L.A. Public Health Department says there is currently no risk of infection at those locations, but it could take up to four days for the first symptoms of a rash to appear. People without the measles immunization have a 90 percent chance of contracting the disease after exposure within 21 days.
According to the report, public health officials have found the five measles cases are mostly due to unvaccinated patients and are encouraging all those missing their second vaccination doses to contact their doctors.
