Cross-NY State Train Rider Had Measles


A New York college student who now has measles recently traveled across the state on a train, the state Health Department announced Friday.

The agency noted that most New Yorkers have been vaccinated against the disease.

The Bard College student took a 1:20 p.m. Amtrak train from Penn Station to Albany and then to Niagara Falls on Jan. 25. If someone might have been exposed, develops a fever and isn’t sure of his or her immunity, he or she should call her doctor before going for care.

The state has had three cases of measles this year.
