Maureen, Kendy and I planned to go to the memorial for Joe Gutenkauf yesterday, but a lack of immunization intervened. Someone decided not to get their baby immunized, and the kid got the measles. Will a full breakout the baby was brought to Somerset Medical Center to infect everyone there, then someone who got infected there went to Maureen’s office.
So they tested Maureen and she has no demonstrable immunity. On Sunday morning we got a call from the Somerset County Public Health folks telling us we were quarantined in our home! We couldn’t go shopping, play softball, or say goodbye to a wonderful man and good friend.
All because someone didn’t bother to immunize their kid. Get the shots, folks. It’s not just about you and your kids, but about everyone they might infect.
Anyway, after the memorial already started we got a call that Kendy and I could leave, so I took her to softball and headed off to the memorial. Maureen stayed home, and is still home in quarantine.
Here’s a couple pics for everyone of Dottie Gutenkauf and the Solidarity Singers.
