An ongoing measles outbreak in Washington has led that state’s governor to declare a public health emergency.

Thirty-five cases of measles have been reported as of Monday in Washington, all of which are in Clark County, which borders Portland, Ore. One case was reported in Seattle, which is in King County. The outbreak is threatening neighboring Oregon.

A majority of these cases involve children between 1 and 10 who had not been vaccinated.
