According to UPI, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has declared a state of emergency in response to a measles outbreak in a Brooklyn ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. Since last October, the community has seen 285 cases of measles. The declaration requires people living in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to receive the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine to help curb the spread of the virus. The city's health department will check vaccination records of people suspected of making contact with infected patients. Anyone without a vaccination or proof of immunity from the virus could receive a $1,000 fine.
