The kids, who were not vaccinated, appear to have been exposed to measles in Rockland County and Brooklyn where there have been ongoing outbreaks. In Williamsburg, where there have been 285 cases since September, health authorities have ordered mandatory vaccines.
Williamsburg, Brooklyn is in the midst of the country's largest measles outbreak-but residents are still split on what should be done. The MMR vaccine, she said, is "one of the most highly effective vaccines in terms of protection and it is lifelong". "That combination means this is the right time for this measure".
Nor is the city alone in recognizing the problem: Rockland County last month banned the unvaccinated from public spaces for 30 days. A state judge sided with the parents and issued a preliminary injunction against the emergency order.
New York City and Rockland County are both struggling to contain a measles outbreak that has mainly affected Orthodox Jewish families.
Public health officials insist otherwise. "And the reason the city government is empowered in a public health emergency is to save lives".

Mary Anderson, a spokeswoman for Montgomery County's Health and Human Services Department, noted that in the Washington region it is easy to find people who live in one state, travel to work in the other and then stop in Washington to eat or shop.
But so far, the epidemic is largely confined to Williamsburg and within its large Orthodox Jewish community. This is a disease that killed 110,000 people worldwide in 2017, and is the leading cause of vaccine-preventable death in the world. "You have a larger pool of babies". Close monitoring, plus education and outreach to further boost vaccination rates, are what now make sense for the Garden State, he and others said Wednesday. "I think it will help in getting the community covered", he said.
Westchester County announced on Wednesday that eight local children, six of whom are siblings, and all are from Northern Westchester, have been confirmed to have measles.
