Disneyland asked California officials to reassure the public that the amusement park was safe to attend amid the measles outbreak that started there in December, according to a new report.
The Associated Press, citing documents obtained, reports that Disneyland officials sent a series of emails to the California Department of Health and the Orange County Health Care Agency, asking the agencies to make it clear to the public that the park was not responsible for the outbreak, and that vaccinated people could still visit. Six Disneyland employees were among 70 people in California infected during an outbreak that has passed 100 cases in the U.S.
A Disneyland spokeswoman told the AP the park was in contact with health officials “in order to ensure that factual and accurate information flowed both ways to avoid confusion and properly inform the public.”
