Measles was ruled out as a constant presence in the United States in 2000, but it has made a big comeback 15 years later.
The outbreak that began in two Disney theme parks in December is now getting closer to New Jersey.
ABC News reports that a Bard College student from New York with the measles got on an Amtrak train at Penn Station last week, and may have exposed other passengers. The student got off in Rhinecliff.
There have reportedly been more than 100 cases of the measles in 14 states.
"For places that haven't vaccinated there's aggressive public health action to identify contacts, to isolate sick people, to quarantine people who have been exposed. But the best way to prevent measles is with vaccination," CDC Director Tom Frieden said, according to WWMT.
