This new case is unrelated to one reported on Tuesday involving an international traveler who visited 20 locations in the county last week.

Between March 16 to March 22, the tourist visited stores and restaurants in eight South Bay cities. We’ve listed all the locations below.

Another measles case was reported in Alameda County on Thursday after finding out a patron with measles was at the “Sauced” restaurant in Livermore Saturday.

A source told ABC7 News the patron was a man. He was passing through and stopped for dinner at Sauced. He also didn’t live in this county.

Sauced, meantime, issued a statement, saying quote, “we have contacted all of our staff and there is currently no risk in our restaurant.”

Santa Clara County public health officials said the rate of measles vaccination in Santa Clara County is very high, so most people are protected from the infection. People with weakened immune systems or unvaccinated children are at higher risk.

County Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody said to call a doctor immediately if anyone who may have contracted measles experiences fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose and a rash beginning on the face.
Health officials also reminded anyone planning international travel to make sure they are up to date on their vaccinations.
