The city shut down two more Brooklyn schools Monday in its efforts to contain the measles outbreak.
The Tiferes Bnos school at 585 Marcy Ave. is one of two additional schools that have been shut down by the Health Department for failing to comply with the city vaccination order. News 12 spoke with a woman who says she is the secretary there, and said the school is not commenting on the issue.
News 12 has been told the other school is a preschool at 1007 Bedford Ave.
Both schools violated the order that requires yeshivas and child care programs in certain areas to exclude unvaccinated children and provide medical records to authorities.
The two schools will remain closed until the city approves their plans to fix the problem. Five other schools that were previously shut down have since been allowed to reopen.
