  • Nope, I think it will lay dorment now for a few months and then we will see it again in the fall. I just hope people don't get sloppy about handwashing and prevention again.

  • There have been several in our area. Schools closed and then reopened. There is a vomit/diarrhea flu going around that we got but didn't bother to get it tested...I think the swine flu may not be as brutal as the regular flu that kills several thousand a year.

  • Yes, including my daughter. H1N1 is SO overrated. It is not any different than a typical flu virus. If anyone has questions, please contact me directly.

  • In my entire district, there have been 10 cases and no schools were closed. They were all at different schools. The Swine Flu has been blown way out of proportion. It is no worse than the regular flu.

  • I have to agree with the two posters who said it's being blown out of proportion......its really just like any other seasonal flu or virus......we've have several in our town.......but the schools are freaking over it......if your kid is our with any viral symptoms they can't come back for 7 days and not without a dr's note saying it isn't swine!!!!!!!
