Measles is a highly contagious and potentially severe disease that causes fever, rash, cough and red, watery eyes. The outbreak is the largest number of reported cases since 1994, as measles was thought to have been eradicated in 2000.

There is no known current risk related to measles that exists at any of these venues at this time.

"It is very important if you or someone you know has symptoms of measles or has been exposed to measles to contact your healthcare provider by phone right away before going in", said Muntu Davis, MD, MPH, Los Angeles County Health Officer.

"We expect to see additional cases here in Orange County, and encourage community members to protect themselves and their families by getting vaccinated", O.C. health official Dr. Nichole Quick said.

Review their vaccination history if they have not previously had measles.

About 90% of people who have never been immunized will become ill within seven to 21 days after exposure, according to the Long Beach Department of Health. "If you are unsure of your vaccination status, contact your provider to make sure you are up-to-date".
