920x920Thirty babies have been placed under home isolation in Alameda County after possible exposure to measles linked to a holiday outbreak at Disneyland last month. Officials with the Alameda County Public Health Department asked the parents of the infants to keep their children at home to avoid further exposure to the contagious illness, department spokeswoman Sherri Willis said. The babies are not infected, Willis said, but had some contact or connection to the measles patients in Alameda County.  “It is our job to try to determine who has been exposed,” Willis said. There are five confirmed measles cases in Alameda Count, four of which were linked to Disneyland. The measles outbreak in California began after several people were exposed to the disease while visiting Disneyland between Dec. 17 and 20. There are now 87 confirmed cases in seven states and Mexico as the outbreak centered in California continues to spread. Public health officials have contacted 500 people in Alameda County who were possibly connected to the measles patients. “Measles is in the community,” Willis said. “You don’t have to be connected.” Officials said the risk of contracting measles is rapidly spreading.
