Lakewood Mayor Raymond Coles said despite the outbreak in Lakewood, township officials are also not considering any measures like those undertaken in Rockland County.
“We’re urging parents to make sure their children are properly vaccinated, Sometimes it’s an uphill battle trying to counter the misinformation that’s out there. For the safety of their children, themselves and their neighbors, vaccination is the smart thing to do.”
There are currently 6 confirmed cases on the most recent measles outbreak in Lakewood, Rockland county has 153.
It is unclear if the Rockland county public ban is enforceable. How is it possible to determine if someone had the shot? Are people supposed to walk around with records? It seems it’s just politics – no sense. (If you get the measles and they know you were in public they can fine you $500 and send you to prison but c’mon!)
