The Department of Health in the County Ocean strives to identify and notify people who might have been exposed during the period when people were infected, officials said. The virus may take 5 to 21 days to appear, which means it may be December 1 before some of those people most exposed are clear.

The outbreak began in October when a man from Lakewood, who returned from an overseas trip, fell with the virus. In those days, hundreds of people have been looking for vaccines against the virus, which can have serious complications for children or anyone with a compromised immune system.

Almost 50 teachers have threatened to have no private schools in Lakewood if students who are not vaccinated have been admitted to school after the weekend. The County Department of Health stated that "it continues to support and particularly encourage the exclusion of school children, preschool children and childcare in the focal area" and that children involved in exposure to a confirmed case may be the subject of an exclusion order, if unvaccinated.

Lakewood Scoop reported that private schools are preventing students from being unvaccinated as a result of teachers' threat.

People are reminded to check for immunization records and, if there are signs of symptoms, contact your health care provider before attending the supplier's office so that appropriate arrangements for examination or treatment can be made.

The County Department of Health issued the following reminders about the potential for spreading the virus:

  • The potential for spreading infection is four days before and four days after the measles 'measles' onset.
  • People can get measles from 5 to 21 days after being exposed to the virus.
  • Symptoms similar to measles include fever, rash, curved nose, cough, loss of appetite and pink eye.
  • Birds can spread through coughs and sneezes and can live on surfaces and in air for up to two hours
  • 30% of cases of measles involve serious additional health complications.

The County Department of Health continues to communicate and collaborate daily with
State of New Jersey Department of Health and other healthcare providers in response to
measles rash.
