The measles outbreak originating in Disneyland has spread farther — to 22 cases statewide — with health officials Monday warning about possible exposure from more confirmed cases in San Bernardino and Long Beach.

One person in Long Beach was confirmed to have contracted the disease after visiting Disneyland between Dec. 15 and Dec. 20, said Dr. Mitchell Kushner, Long Beach’s city health officer.

Two people in San Bernardino County were also diagnosed with measles. Officials from the county’s Department of Public Health declined to release further information other than the cases are “in conjunction” with those arising from Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure theme parks.

It’s unclear if either of the two people from San Bernardino County visited the parks or were exposed to measles by those who visited and became infectious.

Between Dec. 15 and Dec. 20, visitors to the Anaheim theme parks may have been exposed to measles, according to California’s Department of Public Health.

The three new cases bring the statewide total up to 22 as of Monday, plus at least two confirmed cases in Utah and one each in Colorado and Washington.
