I know 2 kids, and an adult. They shut down my nieces kindergarten class because a child had it, and we were told a bunch of kids in my children's school had it, but it was very hush hush. The school board didnt want the info released.

At least 40 students in the middle school (4th-6th grades) and school district I teach in, have been diagnosed and out with the swine flu--if things continue at this pace, it MIGHT lead to our school or some of the school's in the district having to close for a few days! "Shockingly" though washing our hands and using sanitizer religiously has kept me and many others from being affected.
*knock on wood!*
This article is from a month ago--more cases have been reported locally...I'm not worried about me or my family--none of us have compromised immune systems, and even if we were to contract this flu, I am confident we would be able to battle it with antibiotics--like you would with ANY cold/flu.
