Health officials have warned passengers who passed through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Denver International Airport last Wednesday that they may have been exposed to measles.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said in a statement that three infectious, non-residents with measles travelled through LAX. Visitors to the airport may have come in contact with an infectious person at Terminals 4 and 5 on December 11, between 6:50 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

In a similar case affecting Denver International Airport, the Tri-County Health Department said three unvaccinated children who were visiting Colorado from another state tested positive for measles after going to a country with an ongoing outbreak.
