Updated July 15

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced Tuesday that it's looking into yet another case of measles -- this time on the UCLA campus.

Measles is highly contagious for individuals who have not been vaccinated-- if they're exposed to the virus, they have a 90% chance of contracting it.

The department says there have been 15 confirmed cases of measles among L.A. County residents in 2019, and eight confirmed cases of non-residents traveling through the city. The majority were unvaccinated.

This latest incident is unrelated to the UCLA student who was infected with measles in April, according to the health department.

Anyone who may have been on-site at these locations during the times listed below is at risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after being exposed. The virus lives in the air or on surfaces where an infected person has coughed or sneezed for up to two hours.

Below is a full list of places these individuals are known to have visited, starting with the most recent:

People who contract the disease will likely first experience a fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes and a sore throat. After about two or three days, they may develop tiny white spots in the mouth.

From there, a rash of flat red spots - measles' signature symptom - will typically appear, beginning at the hairline then spreading down across the body. Those spots might additionally develop small raised bumps. At the same time as the rash, the patient's fever can spike to over 104 degrees.

More serious symptoms of measles can include pneumonia, ear infections or diarrhea, which occur in about three out of every 10 infected people. About one child out of every 1,000 who gets measles will develop encephalitis (swelling of the brain), which can lead to convulsions and leave the child deaf or mentally disabled.

For every 1,000 children who get measles, one or two will die from it.

If you think you have contracted measles or may have been exposed, call your doctor.
