LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles County health officials confirmed another case of measles in a local resident, the 16th of the year in the county, and said they are looking to identify others who may be at risk for measles and have been exposed.
The latest case involves travel outside of the United States and is not linked to the outbreak reported earlier this month, nor to the outbreak reported in April of this year, L.A. County Department of Public Health officials said Wednesday.
According to the department, potential public exposure location and times were as follows:
-- July 14, Groundworks Coffee, 671 Rose Ave., Venice, 12:15-2:30 p.m.
-- July 14, Frontrunners Shoe Store, 11620 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles 1-3:30 p.m.
-- July 14, CVS, 11941 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles, 1:45-4 p.m.
-- July 14, American Beauty, 425 Rose Ave., Venice, 5-7:15 p.m.

There is no known current risk related to measles that exists at these venues at this time. Anyone who may have been at these location on those dates may be at risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after being exposed, officials said.
Those people were advised to review their immunization and medical records to determine if they are protected against measles, to monitor themselves for illness with fever and/or an unexplained rash from 7 days to 21 days after their exposure (the time period when symptoms may develop) and -- if symptoms develop -- stay at home and call a health care provider immediately.
