Rockland County, a woody and undulating region of sprawling houses 30 miles northwest of New York City, has become the first district in the USA to demand that all unvaccinated children be kept at home.
"Every action we have taken since the beginning of this outbreak has been created to maximize vaccinations and minimize exposures".
In Rockland County alone, there have been a whopping 153 cases of measles.
News 12 asked the county executive how he would enforce that, but he said he does not anticipate that he'll have to.

"We want to remind people that measles is not just a disease of young children, and most of the cases this year have been in people over the age of 15".
"They have been supportive of what we've been trying to do", Day said.
"It's an attention grabber, there's no question about it", Day said at a news conference. The outbreak is now in its 26th week and, despite health officials' efforts to encourage people to vaccinate their children, many are still reluctant. The prohibition was decided upon after county health officials announced six new exposure sites in Spring Valley and Monsey, including several supermarkets, public transport areas, and other social hotspots says USA Today. County Executive, Ed Day explained that anyone under the age of eighteen years old, and unvaccinated against measles, will be banned from all public spaces, including schools. "We need people to help protect everyone in the community", Lyon said. However, he said, parents and guardians who are found to be in violation will be held accountable and their cases will be referred to the district attorney's office.
"Our health inspectors have been hung up on and told not to call again". "This type of response is unacceptable and frankly irresponsible".
He also urges the public to remember that measles is a highly contagious disease, which is often life-threatening. Officials say violating it could mean a $500 fine and six months in jail. "It endangers the health and well-being of others, and displays a shocking lack of responsibility and concern for others in our community".
Loreen Costa told the Rockland Journal News she brought her son to his pediatrician for a vaccination Wednesday after getting a robocall from his school explaining the ban.
