Rockland County has declared an emergency over a measles outbreak, banning everyone under 18 who is not vaccinated from public places such as malls and churches.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day told a press conference on Tuesday, that the NY suburb would be taking drastic measures to stop the measles outbreak that has plagued its residents since October as he declared an emergency, effective as of midnight Wednesday.

The ban will last for 30 days, or until the minor is vaccinated for measles.

Due to come into effect at midnight Wednesday for 30 days, it appears to be the most radical step by U.S. officials following outbreaks in several regions blamed on an anti-vaccination movement.

A county in NY has declared a state of emergency after more than 100 people have been diagnosed with measles.

The youngsters who haven't had their jabs must stay away from places with other people following reports of 153 cases of the virus.

"We are urging them to get their children vaccinated", Day said.

But to those whose MAC addresses matched the ones the attackers had on their list - the malware triggered additional downloads. ASUS has not commented on the matter. "Attackers seemed to cease activity in November 2018 and switched to other targets".

"This is a public health crisis and it is time to sound the alarm and take the appropriate action", Day said.

At this point, it's unclear how this ban will be enforced. They have been hung up on or told not to call again.

Vaccinations are in theory required to go to school in the United States, but 47 of the 50 states - including NY - allow exemptions, notably for religious reasons. "This type of response is unacceptable and frankly irresponsible". Day echoed that message, noting celebrities who have spoken out against vaccines.

In 2018, 17 outbreaks were reported throughout the USA, including six throughout New York State and three in New Jersey, most of which started in Orthodox Jewish communities in those states. The CDC said the outbreaks are linked to travelers who brought the disease back from other countries, such as Israel and Ukraine, where large measles outbreaks are occurring.

So far 153 measles cases have been registered in Rockland County since October, which is almost half of all the cases that have been reported statewide in the same period. "We don't want to see a repeat of how this outbreak started when we saw people gathered together and then fall ill last fall". The efforts to stop the outbreak have been primarily torpedoed by Jewish orthodox families, who refuse to follow the vaccination guidelines citing their religious beliefs. There were 372 cases in 2018, more than triple the number the previous year.

"Eighty-two people brought measles to the United States from other countries in 2018", the center said.
