Rockland County Executive Ed Day and health officials say the extraordinary measures are necessary to protect the public from a highly contagious and potentially risky disease.

The outbreak reportedly took place when a child got infected with measles whilst visiting Israel, and the same outbreak is responsible for 168 cases in Rockland County and 15 in Orange County, New York, as the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene explained.

Medical Officer of Health for Toi Te Ora Public Health Doctor Jim Miller says the most recent measles case does not appear to be linked to the group of cases related to the Mount Maunganui area.

The department says they'd both been recently vaccinated and had symptoms and initial test results that classified them as measles cases. A person is considered immune if he or she was born before January 1, 1957, has received two doses of the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine or has a lab test confirming immunity.

A third case of measles in CT has been confirmed and is linked to the ongoing outbreak in New York City.

Lan City Hand Pulled Noodle, 2612 Washtenaw Avenue, Ypsilanti, April 2, 6 to 10 p.m.

The measles vaccine was created in 1963, and in 2000, measles was declared eliminated in the United States.

So even though your parents say you were vaccinated, they are correct, but not on the recommended dose to keep you safe during this outbreak.

- The virus can live for up to two hours in the air where the infected person was present. A single dose of measles vaccine protects about 95 percent of children, but after two doses, nearly 100 percent are immune.

High fever (may spike to over 104˚F).

Symptoms include a fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis (reddened eyes) and/or runny nose.

This sentiment was echoed by Dr Herminia Palacio, Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services, who warned of the potential consequences of intentionally contracting measles - where it can often be fatal. Unvaccinated individuals may dial 311 to get a list of providers that offer MMR vaccines with minimal to low cost.
