A passenger on a JetBlue flight stopped at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday night was evaluated and cleared following concerns that they were infected with measles, officials said.
The plane was secured at a JFK handstand area after it landed in New York from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. It is now proceeding to deplane.
“After reports of a potential medical concern onboard, flight 410 from Santo Domingo to JFK, was requested to hold for medical services out of an abundance of caution so a customer could be examined,” a JetBlue spokesperson said. “All customers have been cleared and the flight will deplane normally.”
