An outbreak of measles in the city appears to be slowing down.

City health officials say no new cases have been reported in the last three weeks.

Since February, officials had been monitoring 26 reported cases, including 14 adults and 12 kids.

They are reminding everyone that the best way to prevent the spread of measles is through vaccination.
