PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — Princeton University says a student had a confirmed case of measles.
Officials at the Ivy League school announced Monday that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state Health Department have confirmed the case following an additional review of laboratory tests.
The student has recovered and is no longer infectious.
This is the state’s second confirmed measles case. Earlier this month, a Jersey City infant had contracted the disease, and officials say the two cases do not appear to be linked.
Last week, Princeton’s health department required that any faculty or staff member who may have been exposed remain off campus until they submit proof of vaccination or immunity for measles.
The move has resulted in temporarily reduced staffing levels in some departments and offices on campus.
