The Measles Unified Command, involving health officials from eleven counties in North- Central Ohio, disbands after Thursday. Richland Public Health Commissioner Martin Tremmel says this is due to the measles outbreak that started with a group of unvaccinated Amish missionaries contracting the high-contagious disease in the Philippines, now being over with no new cases. The number of measles cases reached 374 with ten hospitalizations. Richland County had 19 cases. Nearly 11,000 doses of vaccine were administered. Health officials point to this outbreak as a reminder of the importance of having your children vaccinated against several diseases, before the new school year starts.
