    Posted 2:22 PM, May 28, 2019, by Kristine Garcia

    ROCKLAND, N.Y. — Rockland County officials have issued a third declaration of a state of emergency as the measles crisis in the country grows.

    The second declaration was due to expire May 25th at 11:59 p.m. The renewed state of emergency went into effect Sunday morning and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. June 24, 2019, according to Rockland County officials.

    “21,582 MMR vaccinations have been given in Rockland since October 2018. This number has increased by 4,624 since the declaration of the original State of Emergency on March 26, 2019; clearly showing how much progress we are making against this outbreak, despite the confusion caused by the various court rulings,” said County Executive Ed Day. “This outbreak, however, is still a public health emergency and we need the entire community’s help to end it.”

    In a Tuesday morning press conference, New York Sen. Brad Hoylman called on the Legislature to pass a bill that would require the end of religious exemptions and non-medical loopholes for vaccines...
