Last night I received a parent broadcast that my son's school will be closed today and tomorrow because a parent called the school and said she was diagnosed with the swine flu, though is has not been confirmed with the health department yet. We live in Ohio and only one case so far has been confirmed.
Please, whatever your thoughts and opinions are be respectful of one another.

I think people who think it is all an overreaction are being naive. Children die from the flu and people are seriously ill from this one, even in America. It is spreading like crazy. Should we UNDER react? If people are overreacting how do you suggest we minimize that reaction? Priority should be protecting the American health.

And I dont think it matters that your state has or hasn't been effected yet. Everyday a new state has a new confirmed case and how do you know that your state won't be the next one? If you knew your state was next, would you change how you feel and wouldn't that be too late? I don't think anyone should "panic" but you should take notice and be more cautious than you might be in a normal cold and flu season.
