LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A local outbreak of measles among five people was confirmed Wednesday by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which released a lengthy list of places where the public was possibly exposed to the virus.

The new outbreak includes four residents of the county who were exposed to a person described by the health department as an "unimmunized, international visitor who was infectious with the measles" while in L.A. County.
