  • Measles is extremely contagious and can be spread to others even before someone has symptoms.  
  • The measles virus can live in the air for up to two hours after someone coughs or sneezes, making that airspace and surfaces around it infectious. 
  • The following locations have been identified as sites for possible measles exposure:

    • LAX: A patient arrived at Tom Bradley International Terminal Gate 218 on April 1 from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
    • UCLA: Franz Hall on April 2, 4, and 9, and Boelter Hall on April 2 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    • CSU Los Angeles: Main Library on April 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    • La Cañada Flintridge: El Pollo Loco at 1939 Verdugo Blvd. on April 11 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    • Glendale: El Sauz Tacos at 4432 San Fernando Road on April 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

    Currently, there's no known measles risk at any of the above locations, but anyone who was present during those time frames could be at risk of developing the infection.

  • Get the MMR vaccine 
    • Make an appointment at Student Health to get vaccinated. We offer the MMR vaccine for $86 per dose. 2 doses of the vaccine are required to be considered fully immunized against measles. 
    • Visit LA County Department of Public Health to find more no-cost or low-cost options.
  • If you have not received 2 doses of the MMR vaccine, you are NOT considered fully immunized. Public health officials urge anyone who isn't fully immunized against measles to get fully vaccinated with two doses of the immunization. 
  • If you don’t know your vaccination status, contact your family doctor or local Department of Public Health where you went to high school.

  • If you think that you or someone you know has measles, contact Student Health Services by phone right away (909-869-4000).
