Health officials confirm first case of measles in Orange County for 2019

The latest case in Los Angeles County involves someone who arrived April 23 at Los Angeles International Airport, according to the county Department of Public Health.

The health department warned of "potential exposures" at a Giant Eagle Market District at 5550 Centre Ave. on Friday and Sunday and an Aldi at 5631 Baum Blvd. on Friday.

The Allegheny County Health Department said Tuesday that an adult, who is not vaccinated, was treated and discharged from the UPMC Shadyside emergency room on Monday and is now recovering at home. Those who have not had measles or the preventive vaccine are at higher risk after an exposure, and should talk with a health care provider about receiving a Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination.

Measles is highly contagious and could become very severe causing fever, rash, cough, and red, watery eyes. "Vaccines not only protect you and your loved ones, they protect those whose immune systems are compromised, which includes infants and the elderly".

"It spreads very easily by air and by direct contact with an infected person, and is contagious from approximately four days before the rash appears through four days after the rash appears".
