RIVERDALE -- Some students are being excluded from participation at Good Foundations Academy, a charter elementary school, because they can't prove they are up-to-date on their measles, mumps and rubella immunizations.
A student who attends the school is ill with what could be measles, Davis County Health Department spokesman Bob Ballew said Monday.
The student lives in Davis County but attends the school in Riverdale.
"We're not ready to say if it's for certain a measles case," Ballew said. "We're not calling this a confirmed case."
Lori Buttars, spokeswoman for Ogden-Weber Health Department, said her office sent out information asking students to stay home if they were unvaccinated. "We felt we needed to be proactive in our community," Buttars said.
Utah has had a handful of confirmed cases this year, according to members of the Northern Utah Immunization Coalition, who were discussing the issue last week at a vaccination convention in Ogden.
