NYC Declares Public Health Emergency

According to UPI, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has declared a state of emergency in response to a measles outbreak in a Brooklyn ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

Since last October, the community has seen 285 cases of measles.

The declaration requires people living in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to receive the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine to help curb the spread of the virus.
