Shoppers at one New York mall have possibly been exposed to measles, a county health department said Friday. Anyone who was in the Palisades Center Mall in Rockland County on Sunday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. may have been exposed to the illness after a case of measles was identified.
Customers who shopped on the first floor of the mall, especially at AT&T and Best Buy, have a greater risk of exposure. Measles is a contagious disease that is often mistaken for the common cold. Anyone who has not had a measles vaccination and was shopping at the mall during those times should contact a physician, the health department said.
“Individuals who may have been at these locations between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM and are part of the high-risk group below may have been potentially exposed to measles,” a representative of the Rockland County Department of Health said. “The Health Department is asking all health providers to immediately report all cases of suspect measles to the Rockland County Health Department Bureau of Communicable Disease Control.”
