Measles Exposure At Disneyland And California Adventure

Orange County health officials say a teenage girl with measles may have exposed people earlier this month at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

Officials say the teen, who traveled to California from New Zealand, was at the parks on Monday, August 12th, and stayed at the adjacent Desert Palms Hotel, 631 W. Katella Avenue from August 11th thru the 15th.

The Los Angeles County Health Department released details of potential exposure locations, based on the infected girl's itinerary:

August 11, 2019 - Los Angeles International Airport, Terminal 8, between 9:00p.m.-11:30p.m.

Aug. 14, 2019 - Universal Studios, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City*

Aug. 15, 2019 - TCL Chinese Theatres, 6925 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood*

Aug. 15, 2019 - Madame Tussauds, 6933 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood*

Aug. 15, 2019 The Original Farmers Market, 6333 West Third Street, Los Angeles*

Aug. 15, 2019 - Santa Monica Pier and Beach, 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica*

Aug. 15, 2019 - Los Angeles International Airport, Tom Bradley International Terminal, between 6:00p.m.-11:59p.m.

Time frames for the locations with an asterisk (*) are still under investigation by the Orange County Health Care Agency.

The Health Care Agency said it has since been working with the hotel and the Anaheim theme parks to reach people who had known close-contact in the case.

"There is no known current risk related to measles that exists at these venues at this time," the L.A. County Health Department said in a Friday statement.

Health officials say they're working with the facilities to reach people who had close contact.

People who may have been exposed should monitor themselves for symptoms such as fever and rash occurring up to 21 days from exposure.

People are also urged to check their records to determine if they have been vaccinated or previously had measles.

It was December of 2015 that 70 people who went to Disneyland got the measles.
