ANAHEIM, CA – As of now, health officials have diagnosed five Disneyland employees with measles. All workers who came in contact with them have to show proof of measles vaccinations. Those who can’t, well, they get a paid vacation until doctors clear them. So far, health officials have confirmed 53 cases, starting in southern California and spreading to Colorado, Utah, Washington, and Mexico.

And now, administrators at Huntington Beach High School in California are telling parents that one student came to school with measles the first week of January. The district sent home 24 un-vaccinated students until the end of the month. Health officials say measles spreads through the air and through direct touch. That means anyone who came near the infected student, or anyone exposed at Disneyland, is at risk for measles, especially if not vaccinated.

Health officials say it’s not too late to get vaccinated. If not for yourself or for your kids, then for other people and their kids.
