The health and well being of our Austin ISD students and staff is first and foremost. We recognize that there has been substantial media attention directed at the North American H1N1 influenza (also known as swine flu) in Texas and so we want to take this opportunity to update you regarding the Austin school district response to the present situation. AISD staff has learned of a probable case of North American flu associated with a child attending Lucy Read Pre-Kindergarten Demonstration School located at 2608 Richcreek Road. As a result, the District, in coordination with the Office of Emergency Management and in accordance with - and at the recommendation of - Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services, will close the campus until classes resume on Monday, May 11. The parents of Lucy Read students have been directed to keep only their Lucy Read children at home until that date. At this time, this is the only AISD campus that has been closed. All other schools are open, and students should attend classes as scheduled. Information on any school closings will be updated on the AISD website and Channel 22, and in other media. Please keep in mind, that due to the heightened awareness of influenza and flu-like symptoms, a number of flu Type A positive cases (which have not been confirmed as swine flu) have been reported in Austin/Travis County. We are closely following these cases and are continuing to monitor for the development of this flu in Central Texas. Notwithstanding, per recommendations from the Austin / Travis County Health Department and the Texas Department of State Health Services, those individuals with fever and flu-like symptoms and/or those testing positive for influenza Type A are asked to remain at home until their fever and symptoms have resolved, as is recommended for all people suffering from the flu. The potential identification of influenza Type A and North American flu in Austin continues to be a developing situation. We will continue to monitor it. We will issue further updates and make additional recommendations regarding appropriate precautions for Austin ISD students and staff as new information becomes available.

Willamina School District officials closed all schools in their district after they suspected one student of possibly having the swine flu. The district, located in Yamhill County, consists of three schools including Willamina Elementary School, a middle school and a high school. The student affected reportedly was in the elementary school, where about 430 students attend. There are 54 staff members there. Willamina is a small town located northwest of Salem. School and health officials have not yet confirmed the student has the H1N1 virus, otherwise known as the swine flu, but students were dismissed as a cautionary step. The student s identity, gender and age were not immediately available. The case is the second possible swine flu infection in Oregon. Oregon Department of Human Services officials announce Thursday that a woman in Multnomah County had a probable case of the flu but was recovering.

The Clover Park School District says Lakes High School in Lakewood is closed Friday after three students were hospitalized with flu-like symptoms. It's the sixth school in the Puget Sound area to close as a precaution against the spread of swine flu. The other schools closed are: - Madrona K-8 school in Seattle (through May 7) - Odyssey Elementary school in Mukilteo (on Friday) - Woodmont Elementary in Federal Way (through May 11) - Aki Kurose Middle School (through May 7) - Stevens Elementary School (through May 7) Pierce County officials said Lakes High School was closed out of an abundance of precaution, and tests from those students have not been sent to the CDC because local tests have not yet ruled out a traditional flu strain. Two students were listed in serious but stable condition at Madigan Army Medical, and the third student had already been released. Health officials said one of the students had a history of traveling to Mexico. The other school closures were announced Thursday because they have a student with a probable case of swine flu - except Odyssey, where the student has a suspected case of swine flu.

The first confirmed Swine Flu case has been reported in LaGrange, a city north of Columbus. According to WSB-TV (Atlanta), the infected patient, a 30-year-old female, is from Kentucky, but was visiting family members in LaGrange after returning from a trip to Cancun, Mexico, on April 21. She has been hospitalized in LaGrange since April 26. Gov. Sonny Perdue issued the following statement Thursday regarding the first H1N1 flu case in Georgia being confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control: Today s confirmed case of the H1N1 flu in Georgia is a reason for precaution, not panic. I want to stress that it is an isolated case appearing in a woman visiting our state for an event who had also recently traveled to Mexico, Perdue said. I encourage Georgians to follow the advice of public health professionals and take the recommended precautions to protect themselves and their families. At this stage, the simplest things washing hands and using disinfectants can be the most effective safeguards. I am confident in our planning and preparation and our ability to respond over the coming days. The most up-to-date information on H1N1 flu developments in Georgia is available at the Division of Public Health's Web site at http://health.state.ga.us/swineflu/.

Health officials today confirmed two new cases of the swine flu, both involving students at Indianapolis schools. County health director Virginia Caine said both schools -- IPS School 60, 3330 N. Pennsylvania St., and Spring Mill Elementary School, 8250 Spring Mill Road -- would be closed temporarily as a result of the diagnoses. The closings will begin Monday and continue through next week. Caine said both children had "mild cases'' of the flu and were not seriously ill. But she added that other students who attend the schools ''are at high risk for developing the flu.'' Caine added that parents should keep students at home and "not allow them to congregate'' with others. The only other confirmation of the H1N1 virus in Indiana came earlier this week, involving a student at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend.

Reported Location: Rockville High School, Montgomery County, MD
Confirmed Cases: 1
The school closings are the strongest measure taken so far in Maryland as a precaution against swine flu. It was the first time a school has been closed in Maryland because of concerns over the virus. Nearly 300 schools have closed in communities across the country. ''The strategies are to slow the spread of the virus in the community,'' O'Malley said. He added the CDC is ''erring on the side of caution.'' Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore County, Folger McKinsey Elementary School in Anne Arundel County and Montpelier Elementary School in Prince George's County all have at least one student with a probable case of swine flu. ''The important message here is that we do need to create what we've been discussing about the social distancing and, until we know further, that's trying to maintain six feet away from someone's coughing or sneezing,'' Dr. Ulder Tillman, Montgomery County's health officer said. About 75 samples of flu-like illness have been tested this week in Maryland as of Thursday, according to Department of Health & Mental Hygiene spokesman David Paulson. Phillips said the state continues to receive samples from people who could have the illness, including from faculty and students at the four closed schools. She said there were 43 samples to be tested Friday afternoon and over the weekend. ''The numbers are continuing to grow and that's what's being seen around the country,'' Phillips said. No one has required hospitalization in Maryland from the illness, and none of the cases has been confirmed yet by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. State officials believe the first confirmations could come this weekend from Atlanta.

Reported Location: Miller High School, CORPUS CHRISTI, TX
Confirmed Cases: 1
Miller High School remains closed until further notice, however, that decision will be reevaluated over the weekend. The action was prompted after test results showed a boy who attends that school may have swine flu. He was one of the first six possible cases of flu tested in Corpus Christi, and his results were classified as 'probable', which means under the criteria used by the state lab, he likely has the virus. "All of the activities and classes at Miller High School [are closed] until further notice. All the students and staff have been advised of this and we have folks at the school this morning to turn away anyone who tries to enter the school," CCISD Dr. Scott Eliff said. Miller is now looking at how to rework upcoming events at the school.

Michael Brame, Region 8 Hospitals and Emergency Preparedness administrator, said as of Friday afternoon there were no confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus in Louisiana, but tests are pending. State officials also announced that the Department of Health and Hospitals is investigating another possible case of the H1N1 virus in Ascension Parish, bringing the total number of possible cases in Louisiana to nine. These are only possible cases, meaning they could not be identified by the Office of Public Health laboratory in New Orleans and have been sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laboratory in Atlanta for confirmation. Samples of all nine suspected cases tested positive for type A Influenza, which indicates either seasonal or swine flu. The H1N1 virus subtype is confirmed by CDC lab tests. Five suspected cases are from Lafayette Parish, one is from Ascension, one from Orleans, one from St. Martin and one from St. Tammany. There are now 338 sample cases being tested by DHH.

Reported Location: York County
Confirmed Cases: 1
The number of Mainers identified with swine flu rose to six on Friday as the state s top public health officer announced that 50,000 doses of flu medication from federal stockpiles are expected to arrive this weekend. As of Friday evening, two adults in Kennebec County, two adults and one youth in York County, and one youth in Penobscot County were identified as having H1N1 flu, according to Dr. Dora Anne Mills. All are recovering, she said. Mills also announced Friday that a youngster who attended the Crayon Academy day care center in York County has tested negative for the H1N1 virus. The center, which was closed earlier this week because of the possibility the child had swine flu, is now cleared to reopen Monday. However, the Kennebunk Elementary School, where another youth with H1N1 is a student, will remain closed for at least seven days. Mills added that officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this weekend are reviewing federal guidelines for slowing the spread of swine flu and that the length of the school s closure could grow to 14 days. The state s official count of Mainers with the virus has fluctuated this week, with Mills attributing the confusion Friday to the terminology used to describe cases of H1N1. Cases have been described as confirmed, probable and suspicious. When tests performed by the Maine CDC indicate someone has H1N1, the case is considered probable. Samples then are sent to the U.S. CDC to be confirmed. Suspicious cases, according to Mills, involve individuals who, because of a combination of factors, are considered to have H1N1 without final confirmation through testing. For instance, the second child in York County who had been described as suspicious did not test positive for H1N1. Though the day care center the child attended will reopen Monday, that child will not return until cleared, she said. As we see more individuals with H1N1, the actual number of probable cases will become less important, Mills said. We know the flu is in Maine and our priority is to slow its transmission and to treat those who are ill. She did confirm that other cases are under investigation and that Maine s numbers are in line with the other New England states. While Mills did not reveal what town the Penobscot County youth was from, Bangor Superintendent of Schools Betsy M. Webb told parents in a memorandum dated Friday that there is a probable case identified by the CDC [Center for Disease Control and Prevention] within the Bangor community. However, the person has not been in school since April 17, the Friday before April vacation, and the CDC has determined that there was no exposure to others at the school. Because there was no exposure to others at the school, the CDC informed me that the school should not be identified. The two-page memo outlines the steps public health officials have suggested school superintendents take if a case of H1N1 involving a student is confirmed. That includes shutting down the school for seven days, more if additional cases are confirmed. Should a student have a sibling in another school that building also would be closed. In another precautionary measure, James F. Doughty School Principal Robert MacDonald called off a dance scheduled for Friday night at the Bangor middle school. In a letter to parents, MacDonald explained that to assemble students in a small confined area such as the cafeteria for a Fun Night where dancing would draw students in close proximity to one another seems inconsistent with the precautionary measures being emphasized this week. At the state level, Mills advised anyone who feels ill to stay home and contact their primary care physician. Our goal is to reduce the impact of H1N1 and slow its transmission, she said. In a conference call Friday afternoon with medical officials and media, Mills said her office has been handling 400 telephone calls a day from medical providers, hospitals, schools and the public, but she did not believe the swine flu issue is being over sensationalized. This is a very novel, very unique virus, she said. We believe most people have no immunity. I would love to say in a few weeks that we missed the big one but I don t think we can take any chances. Mills said the disease is transmitted quite rapidly although, for reasons still unclear, cases as far north as Maine are less severe than cases in Southern or warmer states. Also, spring vacation was last week and a lot of people were traveling, she said. That increased the probability of a faster spread of the virus. On Monday, the state tested 12 people for H1N1, Mills said. On Tuesday, that number jumped to three dozen, and now it is about 100 people a day. But Mills said the testing would slow down once it is determined where the disease has spread. Not everyone needs a test, Mills said. The most important thing is to stay home. We do not need to know each and every case. We just want to know where the virus is. At this point, she said, only three counties have been affected. Once we have established that an area is affected, we will reduce testing there, she said. She also said the people with H1N1 all are recovering at home. No one has been hospitalized, she said.

However, the person has not been in school since April 17, the Friday before April vacation, and the CDC has determined that there was no exposure to others at the school. Because there was no exposure to others at the school, the CDC informed me that the school should not be identified. The two-page memo outlines the steps public health officials have suggested school superintendents take if a case of H1N1 involving a student is confirmed. That includes shutting down the school for seven days, more if additional cases are confirmed. Should a student have a sibling in another school that building also would be closed. In another precautionary measure, James F. Doughty School Principal Robert MacDonald called off a dance scheduled for Friday night at the Bangor middle school. In a letter to parents, MacDonald explained that to assemble students in a small confined area such as the cafeteria for a Fun Night where dancing would draw students in close proximity to one another seems inconsistent with the precautionary measures being emphasized this week. At the state level, Mills advised anyone who feels ill to stay home and contact their primary care physician. Our goal is to reduce the impact of H1N1 and slow its transmission, she said. In a conference call Friday afternoon with medical officials and media, Mills said her office has been handling 400 telephone calls a day from medical providers, hospitals, schools and the public, but she did not believe the swine flu issue is being over sensationalized. This is a very novel, very unique virus, she said. We believe most people have no immunity. I would love to say in a few weeks that we missed the big one but I don t think we can take any chances. Mills said the disease is transmitted quite rapidly although, for reasons still unclear, cases as far north as Maine are less severe than cases in Southern or warmer states. Also, spring vacation was last week and a lot of people were traveling, she said. That increased the probability of a faster spread of the virus. On Monday, the state tested 12 people for H1N1, Mills said. On Tuesday, that number jumped to three dozen, and now it is about 100 people a day. But Mills said the testing would slow down once it is determined where the disease has spread. Not everyone needs a test, Mills said. The most important thing is to stay home. We do not need to know each and every case. We just want to know where the virus is. At this point, she said, only three counties have been affected. Once we have established that an area is affected, we will reduce testing there, she said. She also said the people with H1N1 all are recovering at home. No one has been hospitalized, she said.

The number of Mainers identified with swine flu rose to six on Friday as the state s top public health officer announced that 50,000 doses of flu medication from federal stockpiles are expected to arrive this weekend. As of Friday evening, two adults in Kennebec County, two adults and one youth in York County, and one youth in Penobscot County were identified as having H1N1 flu, according to Dr. Dora Anne Mills. All are recovering, she said. Mills also announced Friday that a youngster who attended the Crayon Academy day care center in York County has tested negative for the H1N1 virus. The center, which was closed earlier this week because of the possibility the child had swine flu, is now cleared to reopen Monday. However, the Kennebunk Elementary School, where another youth with H1N1 is a student, will remain closed for at least seven days. Mills added that officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this weekend are reviewing federal guidelines for slowing the spread of swine flu and that the length of the school s closure could grow to 14 days. The state s official count of Mainers with the virus has fluctuated this week, with Mills attributing the confusion Friday to the terminology used to describe cases of H1N1. Cases have been described as confirmed, probable and suspicious. When tests performed by the Maine CDC indicate someone has H1N1, the case is considered probable. Samples then are sent to the U.S. CDC to be confirmed. Suspicious cases, according to Mills, involve individuals who, because of a combination of factors, are considered to have H1N1 without final confirmation through testing. For instance, the second child in York County who had been described as suspicious did not test positive for H1N1. Though the day care center the child attended will reopen Monday, that child will not return until cleared, she said. As we see more individuals with H1N1, the actual number of probable cases will become less important, Mills said. We know the flu is in Maine and our priority is to slow its transmission and to treat those who are ill. She did confirm that other cases are under investigation and that Maine s numbers are in line with the other New England states. While Mills did not reveal what town the Penobscot County youth was from, Bangor Superintendent of Schools Betsy M. Webb told parents in a memorandum dated Friday that there is a probable case identified by the CDC [Center for Disease Control and Prevention] within the Bangor community.

A second school in Contra Costa County is facing a temporary closure after a student was diagnosed with a probable case of the H1N1 virus, Contra Costa Health Services announced today. Beginning Monday, Shore Acres Elementary School in Bay Point will be closed for two weeks. Highlands Elementary School in Pittsburg was closed earlier this week after three probable cases of the H1N1 were detected and is expected to be closed another week, health officials reported. All four cases in the county are considered mild. In addition to the two Contra Costa County schools, five schools in Santa Clara County and one in Marin County have been closed due to the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending a 14-day closure for schools that have any students with probable cases of the H1N1 flu, or swine flu.

Confirmed Cases: 1
There are more than 50 probable cases of swine flu in Illinois and now one of those hits Boone County. That's just hours after local health leaders said it was just a matter of time before the virus hit the area. The Belvidere School District has shut down all of its buildings because it says one person affiliated with the school district has a probable case of swine flu. District leaders won't say how the person is affiliated with the schools, but he or she is not a Boone County Resident. This person has not been in a district building since April 27 and is currently recovering at home. Belvidere Superintendent Michael Houselog says the schools have not had an increase in students calling in sick over the past week, however because of this probable case they wanted to take the necessary precautions. All after school and weekend activities have also been canceled. "Just to be on the safe side until we were able to assess all of the information we had, we wanted to make this choice," Superintendent Houselog said. The Boone County Health Department expects the Center for Disease Control to return this person's test results within the next 24 hours. Depending on those results school buildings may or may not re-open. Two private schools, St. James Catholic School and Immauel Lutheran School, will remain open, but will not have bus transportation because it's provided by the Belvidere School District. Immanuel Lutheran School will also not have any hot lunch as long as the Belvidere School District buildings remain closed. District 100 is working with the Boone County Health Department to prevent any more probable swine flu cases. They have contacted all families through an automated messenger system and will continue using that to provide updates. At this time Superintendent Houselog does not know whether students will have to make up missed days of school at the end of the year, if the buildings remain closed next week.

Marin County officials shut down a San Rafael elementary school and community center after a student was diagnosed with a probable case of the virus. Dr. Fred Schwartz, the county's public health officer, said Bahia Vista Elementary School will be closed until at least next Thursday. An after school program and the library at Pickleweed Park Community Center also were closed. In Contra Costa County, officials decided Friday to shut down a second school - Shores Acres Elementary in Bay Point - after a second-grader came down with a probable case. They said Shores Acres would remain closed for 14 days, following new recommendations by the federal government to extend school closures because children can be contagious for seven to 10 days from when they get sick. Contra Costa officials also decided to extend the closure to 14 days for Pittsburg's Highlands Elementary, which sent students home earlier this week because of a probable swine flu case. Holmes Junior High School in Davis will be shuttered for one week after the Yolo County health department found a student there had a probable case, officials said Friday. In Tulare County, where a Visilia school was closed earlier this week, officials chose to cancel classes at two more, even though no swine flu cases have been found. The decision was made at Sunnyside Elementary "because there is a student who we know to have had contact with a probable or confirmed case," said Allison Lambert, spokeswoman for the Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency. Sunnyside did not say when it would reopen. The county's Woodville Elementary also will stay closed for a week while health officials test a cluster of students there who've come down with flu-like symptoms. None of those cases have yet been connected to swine flu. Schools in Santa Clara and Sacramento counties also have called for swine flu-related shutdowns.

There are five more confirmed cases of H1N1 in Massachusetts, health officials said Friday. That brings the total number of confirmed cases in the state to seven. The newest reported case was that of a Coast Guard officer stationed on Cape Cod who got the disease while training in California. "As of today, the lieutenant is feeling much better," said Cdr. Paul Smith, the commanding officer of his unit. The officer had been isolated in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus. Earlier Massachusetts public health officials confirmed four new cases, three in Middlesex county and one in Plymouth county.

More "All four of the new cases are recovering. We do expect that in the coming days, there will be additional cases," Public Health Commissioner John Auerbach said. Among those hit with the illness was a Bedford student, according to a statement posted to the town's Web site from the school superintendent. "The student is doing well and is expected to be released from the hospital today, May 1," Maureen LaCroix said in a statement. "Since the student has been hospitalized and not part of the general school population since prior to the vacation break (April 17), it is not necessary for us to close the schools at this time." Weston town officials also said Friday that there was a confirmed adult case of H1N1 in that community.

State officials said the new cases do not include two probable cases reported at the Harvard Dental School or at Amherst College.

As I said on Sunday and Monday, we fully expected to identify Colorado cases of H1N1 flu, said Ned Calonge, the state s chief medical officer at the department. This doesn t change the state s approach to the H1N1 flu outbreak.

The Sedgwick County Health Department has identified a suspected swine flu case involving a parochial school student. County health officials said in a news release Friday night that a specimen must be tested further by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Wichita media outlets began reporting about the case after St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School sent a letter Friday to parents of students, informing them of the case. The letter said the student contracted the flu while out of state and has been out of the building since becoming ill. It also said that the student will remain out of school for at least seven additional days.

A B.C. elementary school will stay closed for a week after a student was diagnosed with swine flu and health officials said it's possible the student may have passed it on to others. Beairsto Elementary school in Vernon, B.C., was closed Thursday as a precautionary step, though health officials said the child who attends the 500-student French immersion school suffered only a mild case of the H1N1 influenza A virus and is now recovering well. Dr. Andrew Larder with the Interior Health Authority said in an interview that the student, a girl, returned home to B.C. last week after a trip to Mexico with her family. "There were several days when the child was at school when there were symptoms and when she might have been able to pass the virus on to other people," Larder said.

Confirmed Cases: 1
Montgomery County officials reported a second probable swine flu case Friday involving a 28 year-old Lower Merion man who became sick on April 28. The man had not traveled in the last month and he had no known contact with ill people, according to county health officials. The four other probable cases involve three Philadelphia residents, a 25-year-old man and 46-year-old female, and 2-year-old child and a 31-year-old Mexican man visiting Upper Merion. The unidentified visitor, who had a valid work visa, reportedly became ill as he was traveling to the U.S. from Mexico last weekend, said Mike Baysinger, Montgomery County s deputy director of personal health services. The man was traveling alone and did not interact with people after he became ill, Baysinger said. He became sick on April 25, but has since completely recovered. Probable swine flu cases are recommended to self-isolate at their homes and complete appropriate anti-viral treatment.

Report Date: 5/1/2009
Reported Location: Chautauqua County, N.Y.
Confirmed Cases: 1
Three Type A influenza samples taken this week from patients at Erie County physician offices and emergency rooms are being tested to see if they are swine flu. County health officials said they don't think any of the samples contain the new influenza strain, based on phone interviews they had with each person. "We didn't see any of the major risk factors," said Charlotte Berringer, R.N., director of community health for the Erie County Department of Health. "But the Pennsylvania Department of Health has asked that all (Type A) samples be sent for testing." Test results from the state Health Department should be known within a couple of days. No suspected or confirmed swine-flu cases have been reported in Erie or Crawford counties. One probable case of the H1N1 strain has been found in Chautauqua County, N.Y. Berringer said at a news conference Friday that people shouldn't get too worried that swine flu has likely been found in an adjacent county. "It's a concern, not a time to panic," Berringer said. Swine-flu cases in the United States have been mild, and few victims have needed hospitalization. Only one person in the U.S. has died, a toddler with chronic health problems.

Reported Location: Massa, Italy
Confirmed Cases: 1
Swine flu spread across the globe Saturday as South Korea confirmed its first case and Italy said its first patient with the flu had already recovered, while the death toll in Mexico rose to 16. South Korean authorities said a 51-year-old woman who had recently visited Mexico was infected and Hong Kong and China raced to find anyone who had come into contact with a Mexican who has the virulent flu. Italy said a man in his 50s in the central region of Tuscany had returned from Mexico on April 23 and was hospitalised at Massa, near Florence, a week later but he had responded well to treatment. "The patient is cured, and has no further symptoms" of the A(H1N1) influenza, Antonio Delvino, a Tuscany health official, was quoted as saying by the ANSA news agency. In Mexico, where the virus originated last month, Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova confirmed another fatality and said he expected the death toll to rise further in the coming days. He confirmed that "the majority of the deaths are women" and said one had been pregnant.

Confirmed Cases: 1
The affected schools are: Rockville High School in Montgomery County; Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore County; Folger McKinsey Elementary School in Anne Arundel County; and Montpelier Elementary School in Prince George's County. The schools will be closed for up to 14 days. Extracurricular activities also are canceled. Rockville High never opened Friday because a student there appeared to be the first person in Maryland thought to have acquired the virus without having contact with someone who had traveled to Mexico, the epicenter of the outbreak and the place with the most severe cases. Later, officials determined that the ill student at Montpelier also had no link to Mexico or any other affected country. The schools in Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties, where officials announced Wednesday that there were likely cases, were open for the past two days despite the knowledge that a sick child attended each school. Many parents kept their children home. At Milford Mill, parents are being told that school will open Thursday. Frances Phillips, deputy state health secretary, said decisions to reopen will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Frances Phillips, deputy state health secretary, said decisions to reopen will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Confirmed Cases: 1
An adult in the North West and a child in the South East have contracted the virus, the Department of Health said. There are now 12 confirmed cases in England and three in Scotland. Meanwhile, the second man to have contracted swine flu from another person in the UK has told Sky News he "wouldn't wish it on anybody". Barry Greatorex, from Gloucestershire, said he believes he caught the virus after having a business meeting in the East Midlands with someone who had been to Mexico. Mr Greatorex said: "I was just in her office and was probably only there for half an hour or so having a conversation with her. "In that period of time I seemed to have contracted it. She had a cough then and that's seemingly where I got it." Mr Greatorex, who started showing signs of illness last Sunday, is quarantined at his home in Chipping Sodbury, near Bristol, and is now taking anti-viral drugs along with his family.

Confirmed Cases: 1
A Plymouth County resident who has contracted swine flu had not traveled to Mexico recently, state officials said Friday. It s unknown how the 34-year-old resident came to contract the virus, said Jennifer Manley, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Health. The department confirmed four new cases of swine flu in Massachusetts on Friday. That brings the total number of cases in the state to six. READ MORE ABOUT THE SWINE FLU OUTBREAK The community and gender of the Plymouth County resident were not released. The person was not hospitalized and is expected to make a full recovery, state officials said. Until now, confirmed U.S. cases of swine flu were often traced to trips to Mexico, where the outbreak has hit hardest. But during a press briefing Friday, Public Health Commissioner John Auerbach said the direct connection to travel is becoming less and less important. Officials said none of the four new Massachusetts cases had traveled to Mexico recently. The three other confirmed cases are all from Middlesex County, officials said. In addition, the Quincy health inspector confirmed Friday that a New York resident who checked into Quincy Medical Center last Sunday tested positive for swine flu. That case was not among the four confirmed by the state on Friday. One of the cases that was confirmed, a 9-year-old, has been hospitalized but was expected to be discharged soon, officials said. None of the new confirmed cases is expected to be fatal. I m happy to report that all four of the new cases are recovering, Auerbach said. But, he cautioned, we do expect that in the coming days there will be additional cases.

flu sample from a Summit County student has tested positive for the new H1N1 swine virus, health officials announced Saturday. There is also an additional new probable case in the Salt Lake Valley, said David Sundwall, executive director of the Utah Department of Health. That leaves Utah with one confirmed case and nine probable cases, with many other cases being tested, Sundwall said. He expects more cases to be confirmed. "Common sense tells me this is the tip of the iceberg," he said, adding he is not alarmed because the virus "seems to be behaving like seasonal flu." The confirmation "doesn't mean a lot," he cautioned, emphasizing the illness has been mild in Utah. "There's no need to panic; take precautions in your personal health," he advised, from covering coughs to avoiding unnecessary travel to Mexico. The student with the confirmed case went to Mexico on spring break, said Steve Jenkins, director of the Summit County Health Department. To prevent any further spread of the new flu, he urged Utahs to continue to stay home and voluntarily isolate themselves if they feel ill. "Don't congregate together," he said. Summit County now has one confirmed case and five probable cases; all except one are in school-age children, health officials said. Now that the virus has been confirmed, Park City schools will remain closed at least through May 10 "to prevent the further transmission of this virus,"

JERUSALEM (AP) - An Israeli hospital on Saturday diagnosed the country's third case of swine flu. The patient, a 33-year-old man, is in good condition but remains under observation, said professor Yehuda Carmeli of Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv. The man and his wife reported symptoms of the flu after returning from Mexico last week. The patient's wife has so far tested negative for the flu. Carmeli said it is unlikely the flu will spread widely in Israel. The two other patients that have been diagnosed with swine flu have been discharged from hospital. Health Ministry spokeswoman Einav Shimron said three other Israelis have been hospitalized with symptoms that raised suspicion of swine flu. A 33-year-old mother and her baby have been hospitalized in Jerusalem after flying in from New York on a flight that also carried passengers from Mexico. A 20-year-old woman has been hospitalized in Tel Aviv after returning sick from Mexico. Passengers who arrived on the same flight with her have been asked by Israeli authorities to stay home for the coming week. On Friday, health officials from Israel, the Palestinian territories and Jordan met to coordinate responses to the virus. In the West Bank, Palestinians have reportedly began killing pigs out of fear of the virus. Palestinian security forces killed one wild pig in Jericho, said Imad al-Atrash, director of the Palestinian Wildlife Association. He called on Palestinians not to use poison because it would endanger other wildlife. What is needed is professional hunters, he said.

A father and son from Howard County who recently traveled to Mexico have been identified as the latest probable swine flu cases in Missouri. Department of Health and Senior Services Director Margaret Donnelly said today both patients have been told of their condition and are being treated with antiviral drugs. Howard County is located in central Missouri west of Columbia. The patients experiencing flu symptoms were told to stay at home for the next week to avoid spreading the illness, according to a news release. People who have had contact with the pair are being advised to see health providers if they show signs of infection. The two cases were found during testing of specimens sent to the State Public Health Laboratory by doctors whose patients reported flu-like symptoms. Tests showed that the flu virus afflicting the two patients is a previously unseen type. Specimens from each patient will be sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for confirmation that it is the swine flu that has now spread to at least 20 states, including Missouri. The discovery of the two probable cases came the same day that the CDC confirmed Missouri s first case of swine flu, which is also known as the 2009 H1N1 virus. The virus has sickened at least 141 people nationwide, but most cases have been relatively mild. The first Missouri case involved a Platte County woman in her 30s who also had recently traveled to Mexico, where the virus first emerged. In addition, Nebraska authorities say that a Kansas City resident who was in Nebraska to obtain medical care for another condition may also have the same H1N1 virus.

In Nova Scotia 17 people were reported as being sick with mild symptoms of the virus, according to local health officials. Of the new cases, 11 were students at King's-Edgehill School, where earlier cases had been reported last Sunday, in the eastern province's city of Windsor. "We have been expecting this and are prepared," said Robert Strang, chief public health officer for Nova Scotia, adding that there have been no reports of hospitalizations for the new cases, which brought to 31 the number of infected people in the province. But he warned in a statement that more cases were expected and that they could be more severe or even cause deaths. Quebec also reported fresh cases, a schoolchild, who had been in Mexico.

State public health officials today confirmed six new cases of swine flu at the University of Delaware, and said two students who do not attend UD probably now have it. Officials have ordered the closing of Baltz Elementary School for Monday and possibly for a week or two after that -- because one of its students probably has the same strain of flu that had until now been reported only at UD s Newark campus clinic. The other non-UD student with a probable case of swine flu attends First State School, a Wilmington Hospital-based school for students with chronic illnesses. University of Delaware students were at the school on Friday, April 24, volunteering at the school s prom, but no one has said their presence caused this possible outbreak. Seven of 15 First State students have been absent this week because of flu-like symptoms, state officials said, but First State School will not close because students there receive medical care on the premises. The school is in a self-contained part of Wilmington Hospital, Christiana Care spokesman Spiros Mantzavinos said. Officials now have confirmed 10 cases of swine flu at UD -- up from four Friday -- and have 16 probable new cases, including the two non-UD students. They also said more than 500 students at UD have been treated for flu-like symptoms, but it is not known -- nor will it ever be known -- if all have swine flu because the specific testing for the H1N1 virus stopped once the flu was identified on campus. The first UD cases were confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thursday. The numbers we re receiving can be very deceiving, said Dr. Karyl Rattay, director of Public Health. ... Because we stopped testing early in the week, we are not going to have an accurate count of how many [have swine flu]. There are no plans to close the university, and the CDC has not recommended its closure. Officials say all of the students with confirmed and probable cases have had mild symptoms. Health officials continue to recommend that anyone with flu-like symptoms -- persistent cough, sore throat, fever and/or aches and chills -- should seek medical treatment. They should not go to work or school or travel, health officials said.

"The Canadian Press has learned federal officials are set to announce the swine flu virus is believed to have infected pigs in Alberta. A government source says the animals were thought to be infected by a farm worker who had recently been to Mexico and fell ill upon his return. This may be the first time this particular swine flu virus has been found in pigs." The World Health Organization has insisted there is no evidence that pigs are passing the virus to humans, or that eating pork products poses an infection risk. Genetic testing shows the pigs in Alberta were infected with the same virus responsible for cases in California, Mexico and other countries around the world. Official confirmation of the pigs' infection is expected at a news conference scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Ottawa.

Reported Location: Western Oregon University, OR
Confirmed Cases: 1
Officials said that a Western Oregon University student who tested positive for influenza-A earlier this week is one of the confirmed cases of the H1N1 strain of the virus. After the announcement, a campus-wide e-mail was sent updating students and staff members, WOU spokeswoman Lisa Catto said Sunday. "(Monday) afternoon, officials will be meeting with Polk County health department officials to determine if a further closure is needed," Catto said. The campus, including activities and classes, closed for four days through today. There also are 19 probable H1N1 cases in six Oregon counties five in Polk County for a total of 22 cases. Those numbers are likely to rise statewide, officials said. "In this new situation, more people are getting ill. The total number of illnesses I would expect to be more this flu season and next flu season," said Mel Kohn, Oregon's acting director of public health. One of the confirmed cases had contact with family members from Mexico, said Patricia Feeny, a spokeswoman for the Department of Human Services. People who have compromised or developing immune systems can be especially at risk for influenza, Feeny said. "The symptoms of the H1N1 strain are similar to other strains of influenza," she said. Two of the confirmed cases are in Multnomah County, Kohn said. Of the 22 cases, two people have been hospitalized, Kohn said. One child who had underlying health concerns since has been released. A teenage girl was in intensive care but now is recovering at home. Kuhn said officials will proceed "carefully and prudently" and monitor new data. "The situation has been relatively mild. On the other hand, we still have not seen many cases," Kuhn said. "We've seen one case in the intensive-care unit, and that's a concern to me. It's foolish to think this is a regular flu season."

Three Hillsborough County schools will close this week, following news that 2 of 5 probable swine flu cases in Hillsborough County are students. An 18-year-old male student at Freedom High School and an 11-year-old male student at Wilson Middle School are among the latest suspected cases of the H1N1 virus reported to the Florida Department on Health. Both schools will be closed starting Monday, and will not reopen until next week. Liberty Middle School will also close, since it shares its cafeteria with Freedom High School, officials said. Students are being asked to stay home and avoid public places like shopping malls or movie theaters. Officials are asking siblings of students who attend those schools to also stay home. Two 22-year-old men and a 21-year-old woman are the other cases, officials said. None of the cases were hospitalized and all are recovering. "While we do not have any verified confirmed cases of the H1N1 Flu Virus in Hillsborough County, there are probable cases that must be considered presumptively confirmed therefore we are working with our community partners in an effort to slow the spread of the virus in our community," said Dr. Doug Holt, the director of the Hillsborough County Health Department.

Reported Location: Centinela State Prison, CA
Confirmed Cases: 1
California health authorities confirmed the first case of influenza A/H1N1 at a state prison on Sunday, indicating the continuing spread of the virus. As a result, visiting hours and other activities at the Centinela State Prison, some 130 miles (about 200 km) southeast of Los Angeles, have been suspended, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (DCR) said. The inmate, who is only mildly affected, has been isolated and is getting appropriate medical care, the DCR said in a statement. The illness was not far from the five other confirmed H1N1 flu cases in Imperial County near the U.S.-Mexican border, according to the statement. Meanwhile, prison officials affirmed in a news release that they take the outbreak of the flu behind cell doors "very seriously," saying that steps were being taken to reduce exposure danger for both inmates and employees. Training classes, sessions with volunteers and other communal activities have also been cancelled at the prison. Also on Sunday, the first three cases of H1N1 infection were confirmed in the Los Angeles area. According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), the three cases include a female student at the California State University in Long Beach near Los Angeles and two residents in central and southeast Los Angeles.

Confirmed Cases: 1
An estimated 1,000 New Yorkers are believed likely to have contracted swine flu in the past few weeks, the city's health department said, but until this weekend almost all of those victims were connected to the St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens. All three new cases in the state are people who either traveled to Mexico, where the outbreak of the virus is centered, or have had close contact with people who have, said Dr. Richard Daines, state health commissioner. That brought the total in New York to 79 confirmed or probable cases in New York City and 16 in the rest of the state, for a total of 95. The 16 are in the following counties: two in Westchester, one in Monroe, one in Cortland, three in Orange, one in Lewis, one in Chautauqua, three in Nassau and four in Suffolk, Daines said. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday had confirmed 50 cases in New York. All of the people in New York who have contracted swine flu are recovering, and symptoms have been mild to moderate, Daines said. He said that given the virus' spread to some of the most sparsely populated counties, the state expects it will show up throughout New York in coming weeks.

Officials made the decision on Saturday after six possible cases of the H1N1 virus in school-age children and young adults in Marshall County. Schools are closed until at least May 10 in an effort to limit the spread of the flu. The decision to close schools in Marshalltown came hours after Gov.

In addition to the probable cases in Marshall County, state officials have identified another possible case in Tama County. Additional testing is under way.

Report Date: 5/1/2009
Reported Location: Kennebec County, ME
Confirmed Cases: 2
The number of Mainers identified with swine flu rose to six on Friday as the state s top public health officer announced that 50,000 doses of flu medication from federal stockpiles are expected to arrive this weekend. As of Friday evening, two adults in Kennebec County, two adults and one youth in York County, and one youth in Penobscot County were identified as having H1N1 flu, according to Dr. Dora Anne Mills. All are recovering, she said. Mills also announced Friday that a youngster who attended the Crayon Academy day care center in York County has tested negative for the H1N1 virus. The center, which was closed earlier this week because of the possibility the child had swine flu, is now cleared to reopen Monday. However, the Kennebunk Elementary School, where another youth with H1N1 is a student, will remain closed for at least seven days. Mills added that officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this weekend are reviewing federal guidelines for slowing the spread of swine flu and that the length of the school s closure could grow to 14 days. The state s official count of Mainers with the virus has fluctuated this week, with Mills attributing the confusion Friday to the terminology used to describe cases of H1N1. Cases have been described as confirmed, probable and suspicious. When tests performed by the Maine CDC indicate someone has H1N1, the case is considered probable. Samples then are sent to the U.S. CDC to be confirmed. Suspicious cases, according to Mills, involve individuals who, because of a combination of factors, are considered to have H1N1 without final confirmation through testing. For instance, the second child in York County who had been described as suspicious did not test positive for H1N1. Though the day care center the child attended will reopen Monday, that child will not return until cleared, she said. As we see more individuals with H1N1, the actual number of probable cases will become less important, Mills said. We know the flu is in Maine and our priority is to slow its transmission and to treat those who are ill. She did confirm that other cases are under investigation and that Maine s numbers are in line with the other New England states. While Mills did not reveal what town the Penobscot County youth was from, Bangor Superintendent of Schools Betsy M. Webb told parents in a memorandum dated Friday that there is a probable case identified by the CDC [Center for Disease Control and Prevention] within the Bangor community. However, the person has not been in school since April 17, the Friday before April vacation, and the CDC has determined that there was no exposure to others at the school. Because there was no exposure to others at the school, the CDC informed me that the school should not be identified. The two-page memo outlines the steps public health officials have suggested school superintendents take if a case of H1N1 involving a student is confirmed. That includes shutting down the school for seven days, more if additional cases are confirmed. Should a student have a sibling in another school that building also would be closed. In another precautionary measure, James F. Doughty School Principal Robert MacDonald called off a dance scheduled for Friday night at the Bangor middle school. In a letter to parents, MacDonald explained that to assemble students in a small confined area such as the cafeteria for a Fun Night where dancing would draw students in close proximity to one another seems inconsistent with the precautionary measures being emphasized this week. At the state level, Mills advised anyone who feels ill to stay home and contact their primary care physician. Our goal is to reduce the impact of H1N1 and slow its transmission, she said. In a conference call Friday afternoon with medical officials and media, Mills said her office has been handling 400 telephone calls a day from medical providers, hospitals, schools and the public, but she did not believe the swine flu issue is being over sensationalized. This is a very novel, very unique virus, she said. We believe most people have no immunity. I would love to say in a few weeks that we missed the big one but I don t think we can take any chances. Mills said the disease is transmitted quite rapidly although, for reasons still unclear, cases as far north as Maine are less severe than cases in Southern or warmer states. Also, spring vacation was last week and a lot of people were traveling, she said. That increased the probability of a faster spread of the virus. On Monday, the state tested 12 people for H1N1, Mills said. On Tuesday, that number jumped to three dozen, and now it is about 100 people a day. But Mills said the testing would slow down once it is determined where the disease has spread. Not everyone needs a test, Mills said. The most important thing is to stay home. We do not need to know each and every case. We just want to know where the virus is. At this point, she said, only three counties have been affected. Once we have established that an area is affected, we will reduce testing there, she said. She also said the people with H1N1 all are recovering at home. No one has been hospitalized, she said

Confirmed Cases: 2
State Health Commissioner Karen Remley, M.D., MBA, said today that there are two probable cases of infection with the new influenza A (H1N1) virus, also called "swine flu," at Washington and Lee University in Lexington. "Both students had mild illnesses, both are recovering well, and both were suspected early of possibly having influenza A (H1N1) and were appropriately treated," said Dr. Remley. "Neither student had traveled outside the country, but both had visited other states recently. None of the states visited were known to have confirmed cases of influenza A (H1N1)." "Given the fact that college and university students tend to travel frequently and are involved in many social activities, cases on a college campus are not unexpected. However, the appearance of two probable cases on the same campus increases the possibility that transmission has occurred locally and prompted me to release this information in an abundance of caution," said Dr. Remley.

Two MIT affiliates are considered to have had probable infections of swine flu, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health told MIT Medical on Friday. The first, a student who lives off campus, has already recovered. The Tech reported on this case in Friday s issue, but some details were conflated with details of the second case. Whether the student s infection was actually swine flu (influenza type A subtype H1N1) will not be known because samples were not taken. The student visited MIT Medical on Thursday, April 23 with a respiratory illness and was not tested for influenza. Massachusetts has labeled that student s illness a probable swine flu case because he had recently returned from Mexico and because the Boston Public Health Commission found indirect connections between the student and some of those with probable swine flu infections at the Harvard Dental School, said Howard M. Heller, chief of internal medicine at MIT Medical.

Confirmed Cases: 2
JERUSALEM (AP) - An Israeli hospital on Saturday diagnosed the country's third case of swine flu. The patient, a 33-year-old man, is in good condition but remains under observation, said professor Yehuda Carmeli of Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv. The man and his wife reported symptoms of the flu after returning from Mexico last week. The patient's wife has so far tested negative for the flu. Carmeli said it is unlikely the flu will spread widely in Israel. The two other patients that have been diagnosed with swine flu have been discharged from hospital. Health Ministry spokeswoman Einav Shimron said three other Israelis have been hospitalized with symptoms that raised suspicion of swine flu. A 33-year-old mother and her baby have been hospitalized in Jerusalem after flying in from New York on a flight that also carried passengers from Mexico. A 20-year-old woman has been hospitalized in Tel Aviv after returning sick from Mexico. Passengers who arrived on the same flight with her have been asked by Israeli authorities to stay home for the coming week. On Friday, health officials from Israel, the Palestinian territories and Jordan met to coordinate responses to the virus. In the West Bank, Palestinians have reportedly began killing pigs out of fear of the virus. Palestinian security forces killed one wild pig in Jericho, said Imad al-Atrash, director of the Palestinian Wildlife Association. He called on Palestinians not to use poison because it would endanger other wildlife. What is needed is professional hunters, he said.

A father and son from Howard County who recently traveled to Mexico have been identified as the latest probable swine flu cases in Missouri. Department of Health and Senior Services Director Margaret Donnelly said today both patients have been told of their condition and are being treated with antiviral drugs. Howard County is located in central Missouri west of Columbia. The patients experiencing flu symptoms were told to stay at home for the next week to avoid spreading the illness, according to a news release. People who have had contact with the pair are being advised to see health providers if they show signs of infection. The two cases were found during testing of specimens sent to the State Public Health Laboratory by doctors whose patients reported flu-like symptoms. Tests showed that the flu virus afflicting the two patients is a previously unseen type. Specimens from each patient will be sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for confirmation that it is the swine flu that has now spread to at least 20 states, including Missouri. The discovery of the two probable cases came the same day that the CDC confirmed Missouri s first case of swine flu, which is also known as the 2009 H1N1 virus. The virus has sickened at least 141 people nationwide, but most cases have been relatively mild. The first Missouri case involved a Platte County woman in her 30s who also had recently traveled to Mexico, where the virus first emerged. In addition, Nebraska authorities say that a Kansas City resident who was in Nebraska to obtain medical care for another condition may also have the same H1N1 virus.

Arizona State University has two 'probable' cases of swine flu, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services. In a Saturday news release, an ASU spokeswoman said ASU health officials are awaiting confirmation of the cases from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Media Relations Officer Julie Newberg said the students live off campus, are recovering and voluntarily isolating themselves from others. Newberg said that "based on continued evidence of the mild nature of this flu strain and because flu is not widespread at ASU, the university will continue to maintain normal operations." In the meantime, officials at Northern Arizona University say a student believed to have swine flu has tested negative for the virus. The 19-year-old student, who originally reported flu-like symptoms on April 24, is fully recovered, according to Beth Applebee, director of NAU s Fronske Health Center. Two Valley schools that were closed after students were confirmed to have had the swine flu virus could re-open as early as Tuesday. According to a Chandler Unified School District official, Hartford Sylvia Encinas Elementary and Tarwater Elementary will remain dismissed on Monday. The schools were closed Thursday. They said the district will discuss with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health the feasibility of reopening both schools to students as early as Tuesday. School officials advise parents to visit the District website on Monday for further updates. At a Saturday afternoon news conference, the County Health director said he will no longer recommend schools in Maricopa be dismissed due to new confirmed cases. Because current data does not suggest that this strain of H1N1 is behaving any differently than seasonal flu, I am recommending schools in Maricopa County no longer dismiss classes due to a confirmed case. said Dr. Bob England, director of Maricopa Department of Public Health.

California health authorities confirmed the first case of influenza A/H1N1 at a state prison on Sunday, indicating the continuing spread of the virus. As a result, visiting hours and other activities at the Centinela State Prison, some 130 miles (about 200 km) southeast of Los Angeles, have been suspended, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (DCR) said. The inmate, who is only mildly affected, has been isolated and is getting appropriate medical care, the DCR said in a statement. The illness was not far from the five other confirmed H1N1 flu cases in Imperial County near the U.S.-Mexican border, according to the statement. Meanwhile, prison officials affirmed in a news release that they take the outbreak of the flu behind cell doors "very seriously," saying that steps were being taken to reduce exposure danger for both inmates and employees. Training classes, sessions with volunteers and other communal activities have also been cancelled at the prison. Also on Sunday, the first three cases of H1N1 infection were confirmed in the Los Angeles area. According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), the three cases include a female student at the California State University in Long Beach near Los Angeles and two residents in central and southeast Los Angeles.

An estimated 1,000 New Yorkers are believed likely to have contracted swine flu in the past few weeks, the city's health department said, but until this weekend almost all of those victims were connected to the St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens. All three new cases in the state are people who either traveled to Mexico, where the outbreak of the virus is centered, or have had close contact with people who have, said Dr. Richard Daines, state health commissioner. That brought the total in New York to 79 confirmed or probable cases in New York City and 16 in the rest of the state, for a total of 95. The 16 are in the following counties: two in Westchester, one in Monroe, one in Cortland, three in Orange, one in Lewis, one in Chautauqua, three in Nassau and four in Suffolk, Daines said. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday had confirmed 50 cases in New York. All of the people in New York who have contracted swine flu are recovering, and symptoms have been mild to moderate, Daines said. He said that given the virus' spread to some of the most sparsely populated counties, the state expects it will show up throughout New York in coming weeks.

Confirmed Cases: 3
The Clover Park School District says Lakes High School in Lakewood is closed Friday after three students were hospitalized with flu-like symptoms. It's the sixth school in the Puget Sound area to close as a precaution against the spread of swine flu. The other schools closed are: - Madrona K-8 school in Seattle (through May 7) - Odyssey Elementary school in Mukilteo (on Friday) - Woodmont Elementary in Federal Way (through May 11) - Aki Kurose Middle School (through May 7) - Stevens Elementary School (through May 7) Pierce County officials said Lakes High School was closed out of an abundance of precaution, and tests from those students have not been sent to the CDC because local tests have not yet ruled out a traditional flu strain. Two students were listed in serious but stable condition at Madigan Army Medical, and the third student had already been released. Health officials said one of the students had a history of traveling to Mexico. The other school closures were announced Thursday because they have a student with a probable case of swine flu - except Odyssey, where the student has a suspected case of swine flu.

An estimated 1,000 New Yorkers are believed likely to have contracted swine flu in the past few weeks, the city's health department said, but until this weekend almost all of those victims were connected to the St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens. All three new cases in the state are people who either traveled to Mexico, where the outbreak of the virus is centered, or have had close contact with people who have, said Dr. Richard Daines, state health commissioner. That brought the total in New York to 79 confirmed or probable cases in New York City and 16 in the rest of the state, for a total of 95. The 16 are in the following counties: two in Westchester, one in Monroe, one in Cortland, three in Orange, one in Lewis, one in Chautauqua, three in Nassau and four in Suffolk, Daines said. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday had confirmed 50 cases in New York. All of the people in New York who have contracted swine flu are recovering, and symptoms have been mild to moderate, Daines said. He said that given the virus' spread to some of the most sparsely populated counties, the state expects it will show up throughout New York in coming weeks.

At the recommendation of state health officials, Cleburne ISD administrators have closed all district campuses through Friday, May 1 due to reports of highly probable cases of swine flu involving four Cleburne High School students. Prior to the start of school Wednesday morning, District officials instructed campus administrators to close Cleburne High School, as well as Cleburne TEAM School and the Phoenix campus at the recommendation of state health officials. After consultations with the Texas Department of State Health Services and officials with the Texas Education Agency, Superintendent Dr. Ronny Beard announced the closing of all campuses shortly before 9 a.m. Our decision to close all schools was based on recommendations from the state health office and also attendance concerns, Superintendent Dr. Ronny Beard said. We were having a great number of parents informing us that they had chosen to keep their children home in response to news reports. We also had a run on parents checking their children out of school. We have been told that we won t receive confirmation from the Center for Disease Control of whether these students actually have swine flu for three or four days, Beard said. The CDC is already backed up with tests from other parts of the state and nation. We are following, and will be referring, to guidelines outlined in both the District s and the Texas Education Agency s Pandemic Flu plan as we await confirmation of test results or should any other cases arise. Siblings of the four CHS students, several who are enrolled on other district campuses, are being treated with anti-viral medication, according to Dr. James Zoretic, regional director the Texas Department of State Health Services, who notified the district of the conditions of the four high school students, who range in age from 15 to 17. Our District will continue to follow instructions and recommendations from the Dr. Zoretic and the state department of health services as to the reopening of campuses and other actions we need to take, Beard said. We could possibly know as early as Friday the outcome of the tests on these four students, which have been sent to the CDC. We plan to make a decision by Friday at 1 p.m. as to whether we will reopen schools Monday.

The Fort Worth Independent School District will temporarily close all schools until further notice, effective Thursday, April 30, 2009. Schools will likely not reopen any sooner than Monday, May 11. This follows the official confirmation of one case of swine flu at one campus -- previously reported as a probable case --and the announcement that there are three other probable cases at three other schools. Superintendent Melody Johnson, Mrs. Lou Brewer, director of the Tarrant County Public Health Department, and Dr. Sandra Parker, medical director of the Tarrant County Public Health Department, jointly made the announcement at a news conference Wednesday evening. We have been diligently following the recommendations of our local public health authorities since this crisis first began, said Dr. Johnson. We will continue to work with the senior-most staff of the local health department. Dr. Parker additionally urged parents not to send their children to day care or any venue where groups of children may gather. Dr. Johnson and Dr. Parker both said they realized this measure will cause a hardship, but praised the community spirit of Fort Worth in responding to this crisis. Mayor Moncrief often talks about the Fort Worth way and this is indeed an example of how the community can rally to support the health and well-being of students, their families and the District, Dr. Johnson told reporters.

Gov. Beverly Perdue on Sunday announced North Carolina's first confirmed case of the H1N1 flu virus, or swine flu -- an Onslow County man recently returned from Texas who has been ordered to remain isolated in his home. The Onslow man's wife also is sick, and health officials expect the CDC will confirm today that she is North Carolina's second case of swine flu. State Health Director Jeffrey Engel said Sunday that there are five other probable cases of the virus in the state. They include four people in Craven County and a person from Canada who briefly visited Wake County. Engel said the Craven County cases are a "related cluster," but how they caught the virus is still under investigation.

Health officials are testing samples from five Framingham residents with "probable cases" of swine flu, according to Framingham Board of Health Chairman Mike Hugo. Hugo said there are five cases of influenza Type A in the town, which may or may not be swine flu. Swine flu, or Influenza A virus subtype H1N1, as officials are now asking that it be called, has garnered international attention in recent weeks, with about 800 diagnosed cases worldwide. Samples from the first sick person with influenza Type A treated at MetroWest Medical Center were sent out for analysis last Monday to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laboratory in Atlanta, Ga. Samples from the other four residents with influenza Type A have been sent to state laboratories, with results expected in the next few days. Hugo said he has not heard from the Atlanta lab that was analyzing the sample from the first patient. Hugo said some of the cases were identified at the MetroWest Medical Center, while others were identified at private medical practices in town. All cases were mild and treatable, he said. Hugo did not release the names, ages, or genders of any of the patients.

Report Date: 4/30/2009
Reported Location: Amherst College, Amherst, Massachusetts
Confirmed Cases: 6
I am writing to let you know that at least two, and perhaps six, students have tested positive for Type A influenza, which may be H1N1, commonly known as swine flu. None of the students' cases are considered serious and all are responding well to treatment. The College is, however, taking a series of steps, described below, to contain the virus and to protect our community. Background Facts: The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has tested two of the College's recent flu cases, and both tested as probable for H1N1. Additionally, Dr. Warren Morgan, our Director of Health Services, believes it is possible that four other recent flu cases on campus could be swine flu. As a precaution, we are treating these four additional cases as if they were confirmed as swine flu. Thus far, most swine flu cases in the United States have been relatively mild. A task force made up of representatives from Health Services, Dean of Students, Dean of Faculty, Physical Plant, Public Affairs, Campus Police and other offices has been assembled and will meet regularly to assess facts as they develop. Next Steps: After consulting with state and other health officials, we have decided that the campus will continue to operate regularly, while we continue to closely monitor the situation. We are taking a series of steps to protect the health and safety of students, faculty and staff at Amherst College as well as members of the surrounding community. Here are the steps we've taken so far: Containment: As a precautionary measure, the six students who have tested positive for Type A influenza, and therefore who may have H1N1, will be isolated for up to seven days after the onset of symptoms. Precaution: We are asking that anyone on campus exhibiting any kind of flu symptoms report to a medical practitioner immediately. Students should go to Health Services and faculty and staff should call their primary care physicians. Also, anyone who had close contact with students with influenza should also contact Health Services. Precaution: We are asking that students with compromised immune systems, serious heart, lung, kidney or liver diseases, and diabetes contact Health Services for advice regarding precautionary measures. Staff and faculty members with similar issues should initially consult their personal physicians. The number at which to reach Health Services is 413-542-2266. Hours have been extended this evening through 9 p.m. and Health Services will be open tomorrow (Friday) from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. When Health Services is closed on campus, students as usual should call the Campus Dispatcher at 542-2291 to arrange transportation to the U-Mass Health Services. Curtailment of Certain Activities: Because social interaction, including parties, can increase the risk of exposure to and the spread of viral infections, we are canceling all parties that have been scheduled for this weekend. We also are asking that students with cough and flu symptoms report to Health Services, not attend classes, and stay in their rooms. We also ask that students, especially those with symptoms, limit their visits to public places.

flu sample from a Summit County student has tested positive for the new H1N1 swine virus, health officials announced Saturday. There is also an additional new probable case in the Salt Lake Valley, said David Sundwall, executive director of the Utah Department of Health. That leaves Utah with one confirmed case and nine probable cases, with many other cases being tested, Sundwall said. He expects more cases to be confirmed. "Common sense tells me this is the tip of the iceberg," he said, adding he is not alarmed because the virus "seems to be behaving like seasonal flu." The confirmation "doesn't mean a lot," he cautioned, emphasizing the illness has been mild in Utah. "There's no need to panic; take precautions in your personal health," he advised, from covering coughs to avoiding unnecessary travel to Mexico. The student with the confirmed case went to Mexico on spring break, said Steve Jenkins, director of the Summit County Health Department. To prevent any further spread of the new flu, he urged Utahs to continue to stay home and voluntarily isolate themselves if they feel ill. "Don't congregate together," he said. Summit County now has one confirmed case and five probable cases; all except one are in school-age children, health officials said. Now that the virus has been confirmed, Park City schools will remain closed at least through May 10 "to prevent the further transmission of this virus,"

Some 30 new cases of the potentially deadly H1N1 influenza virus were reported in Canada on Saturday, bringing the total number of people infected throughout the country to over 85. In Nova Scotia 17 people were reported as being sick with mild symptoms of the virus, according to local health officials. Of the new cases, 11 were students at King's-Edgehill School, where earlier cases had been reported last Sunday, in the eastern province's city of Windsor. "We have been expecting this and are prepared," said Robert Strang, chief public health officer for Nova Scotia, adding that there have been no reports of hospitalizations for the new cases, which brought to 31 the number of infected people in the province. But he warned in a statement that more cases were expected and that they could be more severe or even cause deaths. Quebec also reported fresh cases, a schoolchild, who had been in Mexico.

Reported Location: University of Delaware, DE
Confirmed Cases: 6
State public health officials today confirmed six new cases of swine flu at the University of Delaware, and said two students who do not attend UD probably now have it. Officials have ordered the closing of Baltz Elementary School for Monday and possibly for a week or two after that -- because one of its students probably has the same strain of flu that had until now been reported only at UD s Newark campus clinic. The other non-UD student with a probable case of swine flu attends First State School, a Wilmington Hospital-based school for students with chronic illnesses. University of Delaware students were at the school on Friday, April 24, volunteering at the school s prom, but no one has said their presence caused this possible outbreak. Seven of 15 First State students have been absent this week because of flu-like symptoms, state officials said, but First State School will not close because students there receive medical care on the premises. The school is in a self-contained part of Wilmington Hospital, Christiana Care spokesman Spiros Mantzavinos said. Officials now have confirmed 10 cases of swine flu at UD -- up from four Friday -- and have 16 probable new cases, including the two non-UD students. They also said more than 500 students at UD have been treated for flu-like symptoms, but it is not known -- nor will it ever be known -- if all have swine flu because the specific testing for the H1N1 virus stopped once the flu was identified on campus. The first UD cases were confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thursday. The numbers we re receiving can be very deceiving, said Dr. Karyl Rattay, director of Public Health. ... Because we stopped testing early in the week, we are not going to have an accurate count of how many [have swine flu]. There are no plans to close the university, and the CDC has not recommended its closure. Officials say all of the students with confirmed and probable cases have had mild symptoms. Health officials continue to recommend that anyone with flu-like symptoms -- persistent cough, sore throat, fever and/or aches and chills -- should seek medical treatment. They should not go to work or school or travel, health officials said.

All Schools in Schertz District to Close The Texas Department of State Health Services today announced that all 14 schools and district facilities in the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District will be closed effective immediately after several more flu-like illnesses have been discovered in the department s ongoing swine flu investigation. All extra-curricular activities also are cancelled. The move follows the closing of the district s Byron Steele High School, announced on Saturday. Swine flu has been lab-confirmed in two students from that school who have recovered. Lab confirmation is pending on a third case who is recovering. We don t have lab confirmation for any of the additional flu-like illnesses yet, but we ve found enough illnesses associated with some of the other schools that we believe it s prudent to close all of them before classes resume on Monday, said Sandra Guerra, M.D., a DSHS regional director and the public health authority for Guadalupe County. She urged students not to be around each other while the schools are closed, noting that would defeat the purpose of the closings. DSHS is urging the schools staff, faculty, students and their household members to avoid contact with others, especially if they have symptoms of a respiratory illness.

State public health officials today confirmed six new cases of swine flu at the University of Delaware, and said two students who do not attend UD probably now have it. Officials have ordered the closing of Baltz Elementary School for Monday and possibly for a week or two after that -- because one of its students probably has the same strain of flu that had until now been reported only at UD s Newark campus clinic. The other non-UD student with a probable case of swine flu attends First State School, a Wilmington Hospital-based school for students with chronic illnesses. University of Delaware students were at the school on Friday, April 24, volunteering at the school s prom, but no one has said their presence caused this possible outbreak. Seven of 15 First State students have been absent this week because of flu-like symptoms, state officials said, but First State School will not close because students there receive medical care on the premises. The school is in a self-contained part of Wilmington Hospital, Christiana Care spokesman Spiros Mantzavinos said. Officials now have confirmed 10 cases of swine flu at UD -- up from four Friday -- and have 16 probable new cases, including the two non-UD students. They also said more than 500 students at UD have been treated for flu-like symptoms, but it is not known -- nor will it ever be known -- if all have swine flu because the specific testing for the H1N1 virus stopped once the flu was identified on campus. The first UD cases were confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thursday. The numbers we re receiving can be very deceiving, said Dr. Karyl Rattay, director of Public Health. ... Because we stopped testing early in the week, we are not going to have an accurate count of how many [have swine flu]. There are no plans to close the university, and the CDC has not recommended its closure. Officials say all of the students with confirmed and probable cases have had mild symptoms. Health officials continue to recommend that anyone with flu-like symptoms -- persistent cough, sore throat, fever and/or aches and chills -- should seek medical treatment. They should not go to work or school or travel, health officials said.

Gov. Jack Markell on Thursday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will send an advisory team to the University of Delaware to give advice to local health officials after four confirmed and 12 probable swine flu cases were reported there. Markell spoke with CDC Acting Director Dr. Richard Besser on Thursday morning and Besser agreed to assemble a small team to send to the school. "It is important that we remain calm, while taking prudent precautionary measures," Markell said. "We must be careful to keep this issue in perspective, the students that have tested probable for H1N1 influenza (swine flu) have only experienced mild symptoms. At the same time, our precautionary measures must also be driven by the best medical advice available."
