In a New York county that’s home to the state’s worst measles outbreak in decades, a judge has refused to allow a group of unvaccinated children back to school, The Washington Post reports. Officials in Rockland County banned unvaccinated children from attending certain schools with low vaccination rates, leading parents of the unvaccinated kids to sues the county’s health department.
