Measles state of emergency ends in Rockland CountyPosted: Updated:
It appears the state of emergency in Rockland County over the measles outbreak is over.
The county says it will not extend its emergency order, which expired Wednesday.
The declaration first kicked in back in April. It had forced anyone with measles, or anyone who has been in contact with an infected person, to stay out of public places.
Under-vaccinated kids also had to remain home from certain day cares.
All of those orders will now be lifted.
A formal measles update expected later today from County Executive Ed Day.
