NYC Declares Public Health Emergency over Measles Outbreak

Measles epidemic spreads to Westchester — 8 unvaccinated kids contract disease

The ultra-Orthodox communities of the county are the most affected by the measles outbreak according to the New York Times.

Sussman also represented a group of parents in suburban Rockland County who challenged the county executive's order barring unvaccinated children from indoor public spaces. The City has worked aggressively to end this outbreak, and today's declaration of a public health emergency and new vaccine mandate, in combination with the blanket Commissioner's Orders for yeshivas, ensures we are using every tool to protect New Yorkers.

"I really can't stress enough that vaccination is the key to stopping any measles outbreak", Amler said.

In New York, an global traveler arrived in Rockland County with a suspected case of the measles.

NYC announced a public health emergency because of the spread of measles over the province of Brooklyn.

British PM asks EU to delay Brexit until June 30
In fact the June 30 date was Theresa May's request of her fellow leaders at last month's European summit. Such a long extension means Britain would be required to hold elections for the European parliament.

"I haven't had anyone come to me and point out why the Bible opposes vaccination, but there are some who simply don't want to receive it", Coffey said.

Anyone who visited the property outside that timeframe is not at risk from that particular exposure, health officials said.

Indeed, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was quick to declare the city's action "legally questionable" and "a serious First Amendment issue" - though his failure to suggest any practical alternative suggests this was mostly his usual automatic dumping-on-de Blasio. People can spread measles before they even know they are sick. Anyone who is unsure about his/her or their child's vaccination status can work with their health care provider's office or school to obtain their vaccination records.

Measles is highly contagious, and nine out of 10 people who are not immune and are exposed to measles will become infected.

Immunizations have been such a resounding public health success that most Americans have never seen a child with measles, mumps, diphtheria or numerous other diseases that once killed or maimed thousands every year.

Haftar's forces in Libya to continue offensive to Tripoli
This year, he took Libya's south with its oilfields. "They also called on all forces to de-escalate and halt military activity". But they failed to detail enforcement mechanisms if the Libyan strongman refused to commit to a political solution.

Meanwhile, the Rockland County outbreak is believed to have exposed children in Westchester County.

Simon Harris has indicated he may consider mandatory immunisation after saying it was "extremely irresponsible and dangerous" to send unvaccinated children to school.

The law would not affect the testing of pilots, truck drivers, law enforcers, construction workers, and workers who supervise children or medical patients. Six of the children are siblings.

"Parents should definitely vaccinate their kids", Fuel said in Spanish, as she stood on the corner of Havemeyer and Division Street. "Our goal is to get people vaccinated".

"For instance, if a parent has three children and one of them gets the measles, exposing the other two, the fine would be $3,000".

Homeland secretary Kirstjen Nielsen stepping down, Trump says
Kirstjen Nielsen is out as Homeland Security secretary and, for now at least, Kevin McAleenan is in. Nielsen returned early from Europe and was with Trump in California as he toured the border Friday.

At a time when Rockland County is attempting to get a grip on the measles epidemic and efforts to convince unvaccinated residents to get the MMR shots, new cases of the virus have been confirmed in adjacent counties.
