In recent weeks, the spread of measles has become a topic of concern in the media. In light of a recent Orange County case, Cypress College is sharing information from the Orange County Health Care Agency. We do so to prevent an occurrence at the college and any further spread of this preventable, but highly contagious disease.
It is important to note that the following information is shared out of an abundance of caution. There are no known cases of the measles impacting Cypress College.
Anyone with concerns about potential exposure is asked to call their health care provider or the OC Health Care Agency Health Referral Line at (800) 564-8448. Additionally, information about measles can be found from the County of Orange Health Care Agency at ochealthinfo.com.
Students who need any form of care are always welcome to utilize the Health Center services; however, Cypress College does not have the measles vaccine, booster, or measles blood test available on-site. Those needs will be referred out to the county agency. The Health Center may be reached at (714) 484-7361.
