Big Bear, CA, February 4, 2015 – The County of San Bernardino Department of Public Health has confirmed six cases of measles within the County as of February 2, 2015. These cases are either initial exposures or linked as secondary cases in conjunction with the recent outbreak associated with Disneyland.
