NY Rockland County first in nation to declare medical martial law, banning unvaccinated children from public places

Update:

Hallelujah!

On Friday afternoon, April 5, 2019, calling it “arbitrary and capricious,” the New York State Supreme Court struck down Rockland County’s “medical martial law” declared by county executive Ed Day, a former police officer. See the full news story here. (H/t Vivian Lee)

NBC4 New York reports that on March 26, 2019, Rockland County, New York, declared a state of emergency, banning children younger than 18 who are unvaccinated against measles from public places, until they receive the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. Anyone found in violation could face six months in jail and/or a $500 fine. Those unable to be vaccinated for documented and confirmed medical reasons are exempt from the ban.

The New York Times reports that the ban “will be enforced retroactively, with parents facing up to six months in jail or a fine of up to $500, or both, if they are found to have allowed unvaccinated children in public spaces.

The emergency declaration defines “public places” as “a place where more than 10 persons are intended to congregate for purposes such as civic, governmental, social, or religious functions, or for recreation or shopping, or for food or drink consumption, or awaiting transportation, or for daycare or educational purposes, or for medical treatment. A place of public assembly shall also include public transportation vehicles, including but not limited to, publicly or privately owned buses or trains, but does not include taxi or livery vehicles.”

Law enforcement will not be patrolling or asking for vaccination records but those found to be in violation will be referred to the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.

The ban went into effect at midnight, March 27, 2019, and will expire in 30 days.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day, a Republican and former NYPD and Baltimore police officer, said at a press conference: “We believe this to be the first such effort of this kind nationally and the circumstances we face here clearly call for that. Rockland will lead the way in service and safety to the people here.”

The reason? A local outbreak of measles affecting residents in Spring Valley, New Square and Monsey, which has entered its 26th week — the longest since the disease was eradicated in the United States in 2000, according to New York officials. As of March 19, there were 153 confirmed cases.

Day said the outbreak started after seven unvaccinated travelers with measles entered the county early last October. Although unvaccinated students were asked not to attend school, still county officials have been met with “pockets of resistance” from people unwilling to comply with health department advice and this played a part in the decision to enact a ban.

Measles is a highly contagious disease, transmitted by airborne particles, droplets and direct contact with the respiratory secretions of an infected person. Those at highest risk for severe complications include young children, the immuno-compromised and non-immune pregnant women.

Measles typically presents in adults and children as an acute viral illness characterized by fever and generalized rash. The rash usually starts on the face, proceeds down the body and may include the palms and soles. The rash lasts several days. Infected individuals are contagious from 4 days before rash onset through the 4th day after the rash appears. Those who are ill with a fever, rash, or conjunctivitis (red watery eyes) are urged to stay home, not have visitors and not go out in public. The Rockland Health Department said individuals who have symptoms consistent with measles should contact their health care provider, a local clinic or local emergency department before going in person to prevent exposing the illness to others.

Rockland officials encourage everyone, not just children, to be up-to-date with the MMR vaccine to help protect them in case of any future exposure to measles in Rockland.

“Day said the outbreak started after seven unvaccinated travelers with measles entered the county early last October.”

From the CDC website: Measles was declared eliminated (absence of continuous disease transmission for greater than 12 months) from the United States in 2000. This was thanks to a highly effective vaccination program in the United States.

Why do some people seem unable to connect these dots?

This is horrifying. When I was a kid everybody got measles, you got over it, and then you had lifelong immunity. 153 cases is nothing and I would be willing to bet that “patient zero” of this “epidemic” had already been vaccinated with the MMR, which, by the way, confers only limited and short-term immunity. At best. Imaginary danger from Infectious disease is a very effective way to stampede the people and keep the skeer up. Because it’s invisible. They have been laying plans for this for a long time, look up the Epidemic Intelligence Service. After the 9/11 movie… Read more »

If the hoards of illegal aliens were not allowed to cross into the United States from Mexico, everyday at about one thousand, coupled with unvaccinated students, we wouldn’t be experiencing the outbreaks of mumps, measles, skin rashes, pink eye, etc. In those backward countries diseases are endemic of their regions and hygiene is not accessible. We did not experienced outbreaks for the longest time, It is a must to stop illegal entry and we will see a decline in outbreaks, yes, I believe in vaccinations but at the same time we should not be treated as guinea pigs.

If anything the hoardes crossing our boarder illegally is the problem, not healthy people that families have lived here forever. They have found disease being brought into this country include TB, and dozens of other deadly diseases. None of which originated here. That is where the idiots should start.
This is just another excuse to control us. Heaven only knows what drug they want to try on us next.

So are parents going to be required to carry their child’s vaccination papers to surrender to law enforcement queries about their child’s vaccinations when they are stopped in public places? “Your papers please.” “Uh I only have a pipe.” “Then you had better come with me. Schnell”

For anyone who’s still undecided on the vaccination safety issue, consider that when one side of an argument consistently avoids having a fair and open debate–despite it being the opportunity of a lifetime to show the entire world who’s right and who’s wrong–while simultaneously repeating the horrifically unscientific mantra, “the science is settled,” then you can rest assured in knowing on which side the truth really lies. Just in the past six month or so the vaccine establishment has twice demonstrated its cowardice in refusing to participate in a fair and open debate on the subject of vaccine safety. In… Read more »

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” ― Benjamin Rush, signer Declaration of Independence

Mandating any kind of medical “treatment” is medical fascism. It began in earnest in the age of AIDS. A case in point, I had a client whose twelve YO daughter she walked in on in bed with a 14 YO boy. The boy fled out the window and since she was already under the microscope of DCF – child “protective” services – she went by the book and brought her daughter to the ER, rape kit, all of that. The “Dr.”, as a precaution, prescribed combivir, which contains azidothymidine (AZT). If you don’t know, AZT is a nucleoside analog, a… Read more »

I’m pro vaccination, but I can’t help but wonder what happened to the mantra of the left I have heard since 1973; “It’s my body, keep government out of my health decisions.”

Wow! NY is in tight competition for the most insane politicians in an American state.

Lots of unvaccinated Orthodox Jews in Rockland who are sure to challenge this unless they are given special accommodations.

The epicentre of the outbreak is the Orthodox Jewish enclave of Rockland County where vaccinations are strictly non-Kosher.

This is medical tyranny. Quite frightening really.
This a great way to CAUSE an outbreak. People shed the virus after vaccination. Vaccinated people still get the measles. Self fulfilling “outbreak.” 0.1 – 0.2 % of those infected with measles die. More people die from adverse vaccine events than the disease itself.
People who catch the wild virus are immune for life and pass that immunity on. MMR vaccine is NOT lifetime immunity.
Again, this is medical tyranny and a slippery slope.
