Measles Outbreak: Cases hit a 25-year high in US

U.S. measles outbreak triggers quarantine at two Los Angeles universitiesMore

The school said an exposure to the virus may have occurred in one of its libraries April 11. At Cal State L.A., 156 library employees who may have been exposed to an infected student could not provide immunization records.

MARTIN: Los Angeles County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said the following about the quarantine orders at UCLA and Cal State LA. More people commute than live on campus. They were also provided with detailed information about treatment and prevention.

"A Health Officer Order mandates the exposed person to remain at their residence, to notify Public Health if they develop symptoms of measles, and to avoid contact with others until the end of their quarantine period or until they provide evidence of immunity", the Los Angeles health department said in a statement. "As a result, LACDPH has made a decision to quarantine those individuals until their immunity is determined".

"We expect that those notified will be quarantined for approximately 24-48 hours until their proof of immunity is established".

UCLA officials said Friday only one student remains quarantined on campus due to possible measles exposure, while less than 50 students and faculty "have elected to self-isolate" at home.

A quarantine order was issued Thursday for hundreds of students and staff at two Los Angeles universities that may have been exposed to measles and either have not been vaccinated or can't verify that they have immunity.

ROTT: At UCLA, some students were initially quarantined on campus.

"They say they have 2,000 visitors in that library a day".

The quarantine orders apply only to those who may have come in contact with the virus and can not show documented proof of vaccinations.

With Alex Smith injured, Case Keenum is the only person standing in the way of Haskins winning the starting job in Washington. Last year, the SEC had 27 players drafted through three rounds and finished with 53, and Alabama led the nation with 12.

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.

This is the fifth non-resident case Public Health has investigated this year that traveled through LA County and is unrelated to the four non-resident cases that traveled through Los Angeles County earlier this year. Numerous case occurred in the states of NY and Washington. "This underscores the importance for those who are not immune to measles to get the measles immunization". Public health officials quarantined 127 people Wednesday, but the number has fallen rapidly since then.

Measles usually causes fever, runny nose and an all-over rash but in a small number of cases can lead to deadly complications such as pneumonia and swelling of the brain.

Free vaccines for uninsured and under-insured individuals are on offer at the county's 14 public health clinics.

Los Angeles public health officials declared a measles outbreak in the county, making it the latest metro area to be struck by the illness.

The majority of the victims were unvaccinated.

California has confirmed 38 cases, state health officials have said.

"If you went to that library between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and you did none of those activities - you're not a worker, you didn't check out a book and you didn't log onto the computer - we don't know who you are".

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Tom Bradley International Terminal, arrived at Gate 218 on April 1 from 6:30 a.m.to 9:00 p.m.
