SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - The Latest on a New Zealand girl who may have exposed Southern Californians to measles (all times local):

Health authorities said a New Zealand girl who visited Southern California tourist hotspots including Disneyland, Hollywood and the beach had measles and may have exposed others.

Public health agencies in Los Angeles and Orange counties said the exposures could have occurred on Aug. 11 at Los Angeles International Airport and the Desert Palms Hotel in Anaheim.

The girl visited Disneyland and the California Adventure Park on Aug. 12 and on Aug. 14-15 she probably visited the TCL Chinese Theatre and Madame Tussauds in Hollywood and the Santa Monica beach and pier before flying home Aug. 15.

The health agencies said people who may have been exposed should monitor themselves for symptoms such as fever and rash occurring up to 21 days from exposure.

People are also urged to check their records to determine if they have been vaccinated or previously had measles.

The Orange County Health Care Agency said Friday the exposures could have occurred Aug. 11 at the Desert Palms Hotel in Anaheim and on Aug. 12 at Disneyland and the California Adventure park.
