Yeshiva of Central Queens Ordered Shut Due To Measles Exposure


The health department has shuttered the Yeshiva of Central Queens for violating a May 9 order prohibiting unvaccinated students from going to school, which health officials issued after a report of a measles exposure at the school.

The school, located at 147-37 70th Rd., won’t be able to reopen without the health department’s approval. Administrators did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The health department has now closed nine schools in an effort to curb a measles outbreak that has seen 498 cases citywide since it began last October. The other eight schools have since reopened, health officials said.
