On Friday, January 23, 2015, a CI student, who does not live on campus, was diagnosed with a case of measles and members of the campus community may have been exposed to the measles.

You may be at risk of developing measles if you have never had the disease or have not received two doses of the measles vaccine.

Symptoms include a fever that is 101 degrees or more, cough, runny nose or red eyes, with or without a rash, and usually begin 8 to 12 days after exposure, but can also occur up to 21 days after exposure.

Should you develop these symptoms contact your local healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment, and isolate at home until a doctor has cleared you. You may also contact Ventura County Public Health at 805-981-5201 or visit their website at www.vchca.org

CI students who live on campus should isolate in their room and immediately notify their Resident Assistant.

The infected student was in the campus Bell Tower, Del Norte Hall and Broome Library the week of January 20th and those buildings have since been disinfected.

Classes and activities will continue as scheduled on Monday, January 26. Future updates will be provided as needed on this information line or on the University’s website.
