A measles teenager visited Disneyland, Universal Studios, Quay Santa Monica



A teenager from New Zealand visited Los Angeles and Orange counties this month and made the trip to Disneyland while she was suffering from measles, potentially infecting others, health officials warned Friday.

Orange County officials say visitors may have been exposed to measles during adventures in Disneyland or California on August 12 or at the Desert Palms Hotel in Anaheim between August 11 and 15. LA County officials also listed several tourist destinations the girl visited while in town.

Considered one of the most contagious diseases in the world, measles spreads through coughing and sneezing, but can linger in the air for up to two hours after an infected person leaves the room.

"The mortar is a highly contagious and potentially serious illness that causes fever, rash, cough and red, watery eyes," said County Health Officer Dr. Nicole Burs in a statement. "It spreads very easily by air and through direct contact with an infected person."

Quickly advises anyone who has been to Orange County to monitor for fever or rash. Signs of infection will appear within 21

days of exposure.

The news comes when the country has been battling its worst measles outbreak in decades. As of August 15, 1,203 people were diagnosed with measles this year, up from 372 throughout 2018.

Disneyland is not the first measles site this year. Officials also warned of exposure to the disease at the midnight premiere of Avengers: Endgame, Grove Shopping Center and the UCLA campus.

There are 65 measles cases registered in California this year. Officials urge anyone who has not been vaccinated to be immunized; most measles people in the state were not immunized.

  • Los Angeles International Airport Terminal 8: 11 August between 9:00 pm and 11:30 am
