VENTURA COUNTY ( — Public health officials say five people in Ventura County are sick with measles.

Of those infected, one person spent most of Jan. 12 through Jan. 14 at the City Bank at 430 Arnelli Road in Camarillo.

Those who were in the bank on those days should contact their doctor if they develop symptoms.

Symptoms include: a cough, runny nose, reddened eyes, fever, a rash and tiny sores in the mouth, officials said.

“Probably 95% of the population is immune to measles because they had 2 MMRs, their childhood measles shots,” said Dr. Robert Levin, Health Officer for Ventura County.

Officials said the five cases are part of the 59 cases that have emerged in California since December.

To find a clinic near you if you are in need of immunizations, please call (805) 981-5221 or (805) 677-5110.
