An individual who visited Malibu’s Paradise Cove Beach Cafe on Dec. 29 reportedly has been found to have measles, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health warned in a press release issued Thursday, Jan. 10.

The affected individual reportedly visited the cafe from 12:30-5 p.m.

Anyone who was at the location at that time — and, in particular, those with weakened immune systems or those who have not been immunized against measles — may be at risk of developing measles and are advised to watch for symptoms. 

Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, conjunctivitis (pink eye) and a rash that usually appears 10 to 12 days after the exposure.

Anyone with these symptoms is urged to contact a doctor.

Officials state that there is no current risk of measles exposure at the cafe, “as the period of possible exposure ended more than one week ago.” 

“In addition, because measles is spread from person to person by the respiratory route, there is no risk present related to food that may have been consumed at this location,” the release further states. 

The same individual reportedly visited the Santa Monica Pier and the Blue Plate Taco restaurant (located at 1515 Ocean Ave., Santa Monica) from 1:30-8 p.m. Dec. 26. On Dec. 28, between 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m., they went to Ralphs in Pasadena (3601 E. Foothill Boulevard) and Nordstrom Rack Hastings Village (3363 E. Foothill Boulevard, Pasadena).
