Camarillo Bank Visitors Might Have Been Exposed to Measles

The highly contagious measles virus has spread to at least 70 people, most in California, in six states and Mexico

A measles outbreak that has spread to at least 70 people, most in California, now includes an employee at a Ventura County bank, according to a report in the Ventura County Star.

The Ventura County Health Department said people who visited the bank Jan. 12 through 14 might have been exposed to the virus.

Citibank officials confirmed that an employee at the bank's 430 Arneill Rd. branch in Camarillo tested positive for the measles, according to the Star. Ventura County health officials confirmed the case to NBC4 Friday morning.

The vast majority of those infected since mid-December in six states and Mexico had not received the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine. The outbreak has been traced to Disneyland and health officials have warned people to stay out of the Anaheim park unless they are vaccinated.

Five Disneyland park employees are among those who fell ill. Forty-two of the confirmed measles cases in California -- 59 as of Thursday -- have been linked to initial exposure at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, according to the Califronia Department of Public Health. Additionally, other people visited Disney park "while infectious" in January, according to the agency.

One of the most recent confirmed cases involved an Arizona woman who visited the park in December.

Measles is rarely fatal but can require hospitalization. One of the most contagious diseases, measles spreads through the air and can be spread even before people show symptoms.
