STATEMENT FROM COUNTY EXECUTIVE LAURA CURRAN ON CONFIRMATON OF 2ND MEASLES CASE IN NASSAU COUNTY

MINEOLA – The Nassau County Department of Health has been notified of a second confirmed case of measles in Nassau County. The County’s disease control team is working non-stop with New York State Department of Health to investigate this case and determine the potential exposures. Nassau County Department of Health will take appropriate action based on the findings of this case. Measles is a serious respiratory disease that causes a rash and fever and it is very contagious. We urge anyone who may have any symptoms of the disease to report it immediately to a doctor.

We have a solemn obligation to protect the health and safety of all 1.4 million people who call Nassau County home – especially the thousands of vulnerable people in our communities who cannot receive vaccinations due to health conditions or young age. We will continue to emphasize that the single best way to protect our children and the entire community from serious diseases is through recommended vaccinations. The science remains clear: vaccines are safe, effective, and life-saving.
