Posted by

If you’re under the age of 18 and  are unvaccinated, than you are banned from public places in Rockland County, New York. The ban took effect at midnight on March 27th as an effort to contain the outbreak of measles that began in October.  According to NBC, the ban will last a total of 30 days to try and combat the 153 confirmed cases of measles that is said to be caused by unvaccinated travelers that came through the area in Oct. 2018.

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

Anyone  “unable to be vaccinated for documented and confirmed medical reasons” will be an acception from the ban. Parents who ignore the ban could face up to 6 months in prison or a $500 fine.
