Rockland’s Measles State of Emergency Struck Down by Judge; County Executive to Meet with Team to Determine Next Move

A judge Friday struck down Rockland’s March 27th ban on unvaccinated children in public places. Supreme Court Justice Rolf Thorsen ruled the number of measles cases in the county, which at last count was up to 167, did not meet the legal requirement for an emergency order. Rockland County Executive Ed Day said in a statement over the weekend that he and his executive team will be meeting today with legal and health professionals to possibly find new strategies to address the outbreak. Meanwhile, Nyack Montefiore Hospital has contacted 42 people who were exposed to measles at the hospital, including 11 children, four pregnant women and 20 people with unknown vaccination status.
