Duff Statement on 4th Case of Measles

Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement in response to the Connecticut Department of Public Health’s confirmation of a fourth case of measles in 2019.

“News of the fourth outbreak this year is very troubling. My thoughts are with the child and the family from Fairfield County, right in our own backyard, during this difficult time. The health of our residents is at stake from a completely preventable disease. It is imperative we remove non-medical exemptions to increase vaccination rates statewide.”
