SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KTVU) - The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department has confirmed a case of measles within the county.
A traveler was in the area and went to multiple restaurants and businesses. We've posted a list of places the public may have been exposed to measles at the bottom of this article.
People who are not vaccinated and who visited the specific businesses below, may be at risk for developing measles.
According to health officials, common measles symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and a rash, which can appear 7 to 21 days after the exposure.
“The good news is that most people living in Santa Clara County have been vaccinated and are protected from measles. However, if you or a family member are not immune to measles and you think you were exposed to measles, watch closely for fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose and a rash that starts on the face. Call your doctor right away if you develop any of these symptoms,” said Dr. Sara Cody, County Health Officer and Public Health Department Director.
Infants who have not received the MMR vaccine yet are one of the groups most at risk.
