NY Measles Patient Boarded Amtrak Train at Penn Station

Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images(ALBANY, N.Y.) — The New York State Department of Health was notified on Friday of a positive case of measles at Bard College in Dutchess County, north of New York City.

The DOH was informed the patient traveled on Amtrak train no. 283 from Penn Station in New York City to Albany on Jan. 25, so exposure to the public may have occurred beyond the college campus, according to the agency.

Anyone who traveled on Amtrak train no. 283 from New York City to Niagara Falls, New York on Jan. 25, and who is not immune to measles or unsure of their measles immunity, is asked by the DOH to contact their primary care physician if they become ill with fever.

The agency however recommends that individuals who may have been exposed and who have symptoms consistent with measles to call their health care providers or a local emergency room before going for care.

Bard College has notified the campus community of the measles case and on Friday, the Dutchess County Department of Health held a measles vaccination clinic for any students, faculty, or staff who has not been vaccinated against measles.

New York State has had three cases of measles this year. One in Dutchess County and two others in New York City.

The current nationwide outbreak of measles has spread to 14 states and includes 84 cases reported this month.
