ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A New York state judge has issued a preliminary injunction against Rockland County's emergency order that banned kids from public places unless they have been vaccinated against measles.

The emergency order included schools, stores, churches and restaurants.

Some local government leaders are worried, such as Ed Day, who is an administrator for Rockland County.

Day said, "We're not going to sit idly by and wait and watch. That's not what this administration will do."

"We'll find other strategies to make sure we have a public safety level here in Rockland County to help safety here in Rockland County that is meritorious," Day added.

The judge says 166 cases of measles out of a population of 330,000 people does 'not' make an epidemic.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
