Having to quarantine your child because of a measles outbreak sounds like a headline from the '60s—instead, it's happening right now at a day care in sunny Santa Monica, California.
Fourteen babies from the same child care center are under quarantine for 21 days after one of the infants tested positive for the measles, according to KPCC. There is no quarantine for the toddlers.
"Babies are immunized at one year with what's called the MMR—the measles, mumps and rubella," Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District spokeswoman Gail Pinsker told KPCC. "So this baby did not have that vaccine yet."
Measles is an airborne virus that can hang around for up to two hours, according to the CDC. If someone with measles coughs or sneezes in a space, the disease can be contracted long after the infected person has left the area. The resurgence of measles was on full display in December, when nine cases were linked to one fateful day at Disneyland.
