Measles has spread in about 15 different US states since the beginning of this year, with a total of 300 cases, more than half of which is in Rockland alone, Radio Voice of America reported.

The declaration of a state of emergency in Rockland is expected to prevent non-measles vaccinators under the age of 18 from approaching public places in Rockland for 30 days.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day said the emergency bars unvaccinated minors from public gathering places, including restaurants, civic centers, houses of worship, shopping malls and schools. “I must take this step to protect the infants, infirm, and ill of this County who are unable to be vaccinated against the measles or who are immunocompromised,” Day said in the declaration. “I must make every effort to protect them.”

Measles was declared eliminated from the United States in 2000. According to the centers for disease control and Prevention, 91.5 percent of children in U.S. were vaccinated against MMR in 2017.
