Quarantined infants allowed back into Santa Monica day care after measles case

A sign outside Santa Monica High School is seen on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015.

Fourteen infants who were exposed to measles at a Santa Monica day care center are being allowed back into the facility on Monday.

This comes as the 21-day incubation period ended to ensure they were not infected with the disease.

A baby at the Samohi Infant Toddler Center, which is located on the Santa Monica High School campus, contracted measles earlier this year. That's when the center shut down both the infant and toddler rooms.

School district officials said the baby who contracted the disease has recovered and has been cleared to return to the center.

The toddler room was reopened earlier this month.
