Rockland County Declares Measles State of Emergency, Bans Unvaccinated Minors From Public Spaces

“We believe this to be the first such effort of this kind nationally and the circumstances we face here clearly call for that,” the county executive said

Rockland County has declared a state of emergency and banned children who are unvaccinated against the measles from public places after a local outbreak entered its 26th week — the longest since the disease was eradicated in the United States in 2000, according to officials in the New York.

The ban went into effect at midnight, Wednesday, barring anyone younger than 18 who is unvaccinated against the measles from public places until they receive the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. The ban expires in 30 days.

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

“We believe this to be the first such effort of this kind nationally and the circumstances we face here clearly call for that,” said Rockland County Executive Ed Day at a Tuesday press conference. “Rockland will lead the way in service and safety to the people here.”
