NY county declares measles emergency — Bans anyone under 18 who isn’t vaccinated from public places!

Rockland County declared a countywide State of Emergency relating to the ongoing measles outbreak — the longest outbreak since the disease was eradicated in the United States in 2000, according to officials.

Effective at the stroke of midnight, Wednesday, anyone who is under 18 years of age and unvaccinated against the measles will be barred from public places until this declaration expires in 30 days or until they receive the MMR vaccination.

Those unable to be vaccinated for documented and confirmed medical reasons are exempt from the declaration.

During a Tuesday press conference, Rockland County Executive Ed Day said the county entered its 26th week of the measles outbreak.
