The Tribune (SLO) - - News - BY SOUMYA KARLAMANGLA

Health of­fi­cials are warn­ing that shop­pers and din­ers in Los An­ge­les County may have been ex­posed to measles in late De­cem­ber.

Of­fi­cials con­firmed one case of measles in a per­son who vis­ited sev­eral . There is no longer any risk of in­fec­tion at those es­tab­lish­ments, be­cause measles spreads when the sick per­son coughs or sneezes around oth­ers, of­fi­cials say.

“If you think that you or some­one you know has been ex­posed to or has measles, con­tact your health­care provider by phone right be­fore go­ing in,” said L.A. County health of­fi­cer Dr. Muntu Davis in the state­ment.

Of­fi­cials say the in­fected per­son vis­ited the Santa Mon­ica Pier and Blue Plate Taco restau­rant on Dec. 26 be­tween 1:30 and 8 p.m.; Ralphs and Nord­strom Rack on Foothill Boule­vard in Pasadena on Dec. 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Par­adise Cove Beach Cafe in Mal­ibu on Dec. 29 from 12:30 to 5 p.m.
