There's another measles warning for LAX travelers.

Health officials say an infected person was aboard a United Airlines flight that arrived at Terminal 7 on March 5th.

The person also visited an Enterprise Rent-A-Car location on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica the next day.

People aboard the patient's flight have been notified, but officials say others who may have been exposed in the airport and at the car rental to contact a doctor immediately if they observe any symptoms.

Last week, it was announced a traveler with infectious measles passed through Los Angeles International Airport in February, and county health officials had said they urged anyone who might have been exposed to watch for symptoms of the illness.

According to the county Department of Public Health, an infected passenger arrived at the LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal, gate 133, at 9 a.m. Feb. 21 aboard China Eastern flight 583.

The passenger had a layover at Delta Air Lines gate 32 in Terminal 3, eventually leaving aboard flight DL 5705.
