Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert advise residents that an international traveler who has been confirmed to have measles visited Congregation Khal Torath Viznitz in Monsey, potentially exposing others to measles from September 20 to September 21.
Anyone who visited Congregation Khal Torath Viznitz at 25 Phyllis Terrace in Monsey during these times may have been exposed to measles:
-Friday, September 20, from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm, with a risk of exposure until 12:00 am.
-Saturday, September 21, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, with a risk of exposure until 3:00 pm.
“We continue to urge residents to check their immunization status and get vaccinated if they are unimmunized. By avoiding having pockets of susceptible individuals, we can prevent the measles from spreading further within our County. The MMR vaccination remains the only safe and effective way to prevent the measles,” said County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert.
