Health Department: More measles cases possible in Orange CountyPosted: Updated:
Officials in Orange County say more people may have potentially been exposed to the measles.
The Health Department says that anyone who used Motty's Taxi Service on Nov. 14 at certain times may have been exposed.
News 12 previously reported that there was already one confirmed case of the measles in Orange County. A baby at a health facility in Kiryas Joel had showed symptoms.
The Orange County Health Commissioner says this case is linked to the Rockland County measles cases, where 77 cases have been confirmed with 7 suspected cases.
The incidents began in September when five people returned home from Israel.
Symptoms of the measles include high fever, runny nose and a rash that can show up two weeks after exposure.
