LOS ANGELES (AP) – Nearly two-thirds of nearly 800 students, faculty teachers, and staff quarantined after measles virus exposure at two Los Angeles universities are allowed to continue their normal activities.
Quarantine has identified one of the largest efforts by authorities to control measles outbreaks where cases have reached 25 years.
People at California State University in Los Angeles and at the University of California in Los Angeles were released after they provided proof of immunity.
On the Cal State campus, 435 students and staff were checked in on Monday afternoon, with 221 still in quarantine.
Officials said they were exposed to an infected student who visited the school library.
In UCLA, 27 people remained in quarantine. People in this area were in classes attended by an infected student.
