LIVERMORE (KRON) — Public health officials are warning residents in Alameda County of measles exposure at a northern California restaurant. 

The Alameda County Health Department is warning that individuals who visited Sauced BBQ and Spirits Restaurant in Livermore on March 23 between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. may have been exposed to the disease. 

Officials say those who are not immune to the measles and visited the restaurant are at risk for contracting the disease. 

People who visited the restaurant between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. on March 23 should contact their health provider and the county health department if they are: 

  • Pregnant
  • Have a weakened immune system
  • An infant 12 months of age or younger
  • Known to be unvaccinated against measles or
  • A health care worker

If you are experiencing symptoms like fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and a rash, call your doctor right away. 

The restaurant is located at 2300 First St #120, Livermore, CA 94550.

This case in Alameda County is one of many seen in the Bay Area this month. Earlier this week, health officials warned residents and visitors of measles exposure at several stores and restaurants in Santa Clara County.

An international traveler who visited Santa Clara County tested positive for the disease, officials said.
