Customers at north fork public house voiced their concern after hearing about the measles cases.

Latoya: "i mean it makes me nervous, just as a mother of two children, and i believe in vaccinations, but i know that alot of other people arent."

Those that have already been vaccinated for measles are at a very low risk of getting this disease, but those that have not been vaccinated and that have been at north fork public house or blu mist are at a higher risk.

Riley: "its scary for sure and nerve wracking, but not that surprising."

The general manager at north fork public house says they are working with lane county health officials to make sure everything is safe for customers eating at their restaurant.

Latoya: "but i mean its something serious, people are dying, children are dying, elderly are dying, so as a parent its concerning.

Its concerning that something we thought was eradicated is returning."

Kayla juan: for the children that aren't vaccinated its really dangerous for them and it just doesn't make you feel comfortble."
