Public Health Investigates 
Measles Case

Residents urged to get measles immunization to protect 
their health and prevent disease spread

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) is 
investigating an additional confirmed case of measles in a Los Angeles County resident. This 
sixth case occurred in a Los Angeles County resident after international travel and is not related 
to any of the measles cases announced earlier this year. Currently, there are six among 
Los Angeles County residents in 2019, and five non-resident cases that traveled through Los 
Angeles County. The majority of the cases were un-vaccinated.

Public Health urges residents, especially those who travel internationally and those who have 
not been fully immunized against measles, to get the measles immunization in order to better 
protect their individual health and to prevent the spread of measles to others.

Persons who may have been on-site at the date and time for any of the below locations may 
be at risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after being exposed.

The following locations have been currently identified as potential measles exposures:

• Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Tom Bradley International Terminal, on 
April 23, 2019 between 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

• Fox Auto Parks LAX Shuttle on April 23, 2019 between 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

• Home Depot, 44226 20th St W, Lancaster, CA 93534, on April 26, 2019 between 8:00 
a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

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

“With widespread outbreaks of measles happening in the United States and internationally, 
and local cases transmitted within Los Angeles County, this case is a reminder that there is 
an increased risk of the measles at this time. It is 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. “The best way to protect yourself and to prevent the spread of measles is to get the 
measles immunization, with two doses of measles im-munization being about 97% effective 
at preventing measles.”

Travelers taking domestic trips should follow the general Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC) vaccination recommendations. Those traveling internationally should 
consider the expedited schedule, particularly for children and anyone who does not have 
evidence of immunity.

Public Health is disclosing information on locations where measles exposure may have occurred 
in or-der to reach individuals who may have been present at these locations during 
the specified dates and times. Individuals on the flight have been separately contacted. In 
situations where all persons who have been exposed can be identified, Public Health works 
with organizations, case contacts, and fami-ly members to directly notify everyone involved. 
Individuals who have been free of symptoms for more than 21 days are no longer at risk for 
developing measles.

Public Health investigates all cases in the county and identifies potential contacts to try to 
prevent additional spread of measles. Public Health continues to monitor for measles cases 
and identify others who may have come in contact with persons with measles. Public Health 
communicates with health care providers, health plans, local governments, schools, and 
elected officials to provide updates on the measles outbreak and actions they can take to help 
prevent the spread of measles and support the countywide response.


About Measles

Measles is considered among the most contagious viruses in the world. About 90% of people 
who have never been immunized against measles become ill 7-21 days after exposure. Infected 
people can infect those around them before they have symptoms and know they are 
infected. Common symp-toms of measles include fever, cough, runny nose, conjunctivitis 
(red eyes) and a rash which usually appears 10 to 21 days after the exposure. The measles 
virus can be transmitted from one person to another up to 4 days before the onset of rash.

Individuals should contact their healthcare provider by phone before going in if they develop 
measles symptoms, so measures can be taken to prevent possible spread to others in the provider’s 
waiting room. They should also tell their doctor or other healthcare provider if they 
traveled internationally or had international visitors in the last 21 days or had exposure to 
another person with measles.

Measles immunizations are available at healthcare providers, local pharmacy or health clinic. 
Public Health clinics offer no or low-cost immunizations for individuals who are uninsured 
or underinsured. To find a nearby Public Health clinic, call 2-1-1 or vis-it http://www.publichealth.
