LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles County health officials reported another confirmed case of measles today in a local resident who recently traveled and became ill shortly after returning to the Southland.

Health officials said the person may have exposed others at a series of locations between Friday and Monday.

Those locations are:

-- 5:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Friday at a commercial building at 3756 Santa Rosalia Drive, Los Angeles;

-- 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Culver City Arclight Cinemas, 9500 Culver Blvd.;

-- 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday at AR Cucina Restaurant, 9531 Culver Blvd., Culver City;

-- 11:35 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. Monday at a commercial building at 3201 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica; and

-- 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday at Erewhon Market, 2800 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica.

Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed at those locations should review their immunization records to determine if they are protected, and if not, call a health care provider. People who are exposed can develop measles up to 21 days after exposure.

The latest case brings to 18 the number of measles infections among county residents this year, in addition to 11 non-resident cases that traveled through the county -- excluding Long Beach and Pasadena, which have their own health departments and track their own cases.
