A Crown Heights learning competition has banned unvaccinated students who were exposed to measles from participating, COLLIVE reported.
Shimmy Weinbaum, director of the Chidon learning competition currently taking place in Crown Heights, wrote a letter to parents and principals informing them of his decision.
In his letter, which was published on COLLIVE, Weinbaum wrote: “There has been a confirmed case of measles in the Crown Heights community.”
“As director of the Chidon, it is my responsibility to notify you that Tzivos Hashem cannot and will not take any responsibility for anyone who is Chas Veshalom (G-d forbid – ed.) exposed to measles or impacted in any way.
“Being that the carrier was in Oholei Torah while the children were in the building, the health department and local doctors have banned any unvaccinated Oholei Torah child from participating in the Chidon.
“With regard to all other children, it is up to each school and parent to do what’s best for their child.”
