According to a news release from the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, a non-Los Angeles County native visited Universal Studios on March 20, 2024. The news release notes specific dining locations the guest visited while at Universal Studios, which include Cletus’ Chicken Shack, Lard Lad Doughnuts and EC Food Truck, and Buca Di Beppo at Universal CityWalk.

The Department of Public Health states that individuals who were at the reported locations may be at risk for developing measles within 21 days from the exposure date, meaning anyone who was exposed would have begun to show symptoms by now.

In a statement to Variety, Universal Studios Hollywood said the following:

We were recently made aware that a guest who had been exposed to measles visited numerous Southern California locations including our theme park. While there is very low risk of transmission as a result of effective vaccination, the safety and security of our guests and team members is of utmost importance. More information is available through the Department of Public Health.
