Fourth case of measles reported in Ocean County outbreak

A fourth case of measles has been diagnosed in Ocean County’s ongoing outbreak.

The Health Department says anyone who visited the Bais Medrash Tiferes Pinchos synogogue in Lakewood on Mar. 9 or Terminal B at Newark Airport on Mar. 14 may have been exposed to the highly contagious virus and should contact a doctor.

Health officials say they are investigating to determine whether there is any connection between these recent cases of measles, a previous Ocean County outbreak, or current outbreaks in other states.
