New York – A passenger on a JetBlue flight stopped at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday night was evaluated and cleared following concerns that they were infected with measles.

Crew reported two active measles cases, officials said.  The was secured at a JFK handstand area.

The flight was from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic with many Jewish passengers returning to New York after a pesach program.

After EMTs and medical professionals checked out the passenger, who was previously vaccinated, it appears to be a false alarm.

“After reports of a potential medical concern onboard, flight 410 from Santo Domingo to JFK, was requested to hold for medical services out of an abundance of caution so a customer could be examined,” a JetBlue spokesperson said.  “All customers have been cleared and the flight will deplane normally.”
