A judge is expected to rule today whether the county had the authority to declare a state of emergency over the measles outbreak. Judge Rolf Thorsen heard arguments yesterday. The county has defended the action, claiming the public’s health was at risk. Un-vaccinated children under the age 18 were barred from schools and public places on March 26th. In other measles news, Rockland State Senator David Carlucci is among a handful of lawmakers looking to end religious exemptions for vaccinations. The number of measles cases in Rockland County is now up to 166. When cases in Brooklyn and Queens are added in, it’s over 420.
