• LAX: One patient arrived at Tom Bradley International Terminal Gate 218 o April 1 from 6:30 am to 9:00 pm
• UCLA: Franz Hall on 2 April, 4 and 9 and Boelter Hall on April 2 and 9, from 10:00 to 18:00

At present, there is no known measles risk at any of the sites mentioned above, but anyone present during these time frames may risk developing the infection.

As of last Thursday, 23 measles cases had confirmed so far this year in California, according to the Public Health Department. That figure does not include the new cases confirmed in LA County.

Nationally, 626 cases have been confirmed since January 1, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agency says it is the second highest number of cases in the US, as measles was eliminated in 2000 and tends to outperform the 667 cases reported in 2014.

People who have not been vaccinated and those with weakened immune systems have the highest risk.

Symptoms include fever, cough, a runny nose and red eyes. Rashes usually occur 10 to 21 days after exposure, according to public health managers.

If you have not developed any symptoms 21 days after the possible exposure, you are no longer considered to be at risk of developing measles.

People who are infected can infect others around them before they know they are infected and up to four days before a rash begins to develop. About 90 percent of unvaccinated people get sick 7 to 21 days after exposure, the authorities say.

Public health officials urge anyone who is not fully immunized against measles to be fully vaccinated with two doses of immunization.
