Are they closing schools and cancelling events in your state because of the swine flu?

Here in Texas they chut down one school for a whole week. They have also cancelled UIL events in our state and events have been cancelled and post poned. Should I start worrying about getting it? because I haven't been to worried until now. Are they just being paranoid?

  • i think its part paranoia part reality. if its safer for them to shut things down and not worry about it being spread that way than thats safer, which really is paranoia when you think about it. i don't live in a state with any cases, but i still back up a little more in line at the store when people are coughing or sneezing, more so than i would if it was just reg flu/cold season

  • Is that maybe why they are cancelling things here in Texas because we HAVE had confirmed cases?

  • I heard they closed a school in the community next to ours but I don't know for how long. One kid was confirmed to have it, and 6 teachers were sick but weren't tested.
