SHASTA COUNTY, Calif - Shasta County Public Health says the first case of the measles was confirmed in Shasta County and that people infected may have traveled to Tehama County.

The first case of measles in this outbreak was reported on Sunday, March 24, 2019.

Action News Now is working to confirm exactly what city in the county but we know the woman is not from Shasta County, and that she got the illness from her father who he was traveling overseas.

Shasta County Health and Human Services have identified some times and locations people may have been exposed. These include:

  • Walmart in Red Bluff the evening of March 16

  • Taco Bell on Old Alturas Road in Redding on March 16 and March 17.

  • Raley's in Red Bluff and Redding on March 18.

  • Shasta College on March 19, including both the library and building 800.

Health officials say the patient may have not known she was infected until it was too late.

Right now, the patient is being treated in isolation.

We are working to find out if there has been anyone else infected by this illness.
