New York judge overturns ban on unvaccinated children from public places

Regional News

A ban on unvaccinated children from public places in New York is overturned.

Last month — Rockland County put the ban in place to try to contain an ongoing outbreak.

A New York State Judge reversed it on Friday.

He also ruled that unvaccinated children are free to go to schools and public places for now.

The ruling was part of a lawsuit brought by parents.

They argued the ban overstepped the county’s legal authority.

Rockland county officials say around 170 people have contracted measles over the past seven months.
