‘Avengers: Endgame’ midnight crowd might have been exposed to measles, officials warn

Health officials confirm first case of measles in Orange County for 2019

Meanwhile, in California, the Orange County Health Care Agency on Tuesday confirmed the first case of measles there in 2019 - a Placentia resident in her 20s who traveled overseas recently, CBS Los Angeles reports. Officials did not say whether the woman had been vaccinated for measles.

Well, the measles outbreak keeps on ruining everything decent in the world as authorities now are warning that the first known patient in Orange County, California went to a midnight screening of Avengers: Endgame before she knew she had measles. "I wasn't even expecting Orange County", she said.

The HCA says a Placentia woman in her 20s recently traveled to one of the many countries experiencing widespread measles activity.

The Allegheny County case is not connected to the ongoing nationwide measles outbreak, Health Department Chief Epidemiologist LuAnn Brink said Wednesday.

The woman has now voluntarily quarantined herself at her home in Orange County while officials try to identify anyone who might have been exposed at the AMC movie theater in Fullerton. "And of the nine jurisdictions now experiencing outbreaks in the United States, three of them are in California-and the disease has turned up in 11 counties so far". Of course, the MMR vaccine is the simplest most effective measure to prevent it.

The disease is highly contagious and spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Health officials are urging anyone who believes they were exposed to check their vaccine record and call their doctor for advice.
