Montefiore: Patient with measles came to emergency room
Officials at Montefiore Medical Center say someone came into its emergency room at the Norwood facility Monday night with a case of the measles.
There was no word on the patient’s condition, but the hospital did release a statement:
"We are reaching out to anyone who may have been exposed, and are providing information about measles, including how to monitor yourself and when to contact your doctor."
It went on to say: “We are setting up special locations for post exposure treatment and care as needed."
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a public health emergency Tuesday due to the measles outbreak, and ordered mandatory vaccinations for certain people who may have been exposed to the virus.
