A potential explosion of measles could have been triggered by a college student infected with the disease who traveled by train from New York City to northern New York State last Sunday. The student, who attends Bard College, traveled on the 1:20 p.m. train from Penn station to Rhinecliff, N.Y. with a stop in Albany according to ABC News.
The New York State Department of Health released a warning that stated, “Anyone traveling on Amtrak train #283 from Penn Station in NYC to Albany on January 25, 2015, and who is not immune to measles or not sure of their measles immunity, should contact their primary care physician if they become ill with fever.” The Department of Health continued according to ABC News, “In order to prevent the spread of illness, DOH is advising 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. This will help to prevent others at these facilities from being exposed to the illness.”
