Here & Now

"Two cases of laboratory confirmed influenza caused by the novel H1N1 (Swine) influenza virus strain have been identified by the Forsyth County Department of Public Health within the last 24 hours.

Health Department employees are currently investigating both cases; however, there is no early evidence that the two cases are related or that either poses a risk of transmission to high risk populations.

If it is determined by the investigation that there are potentially exposed persons with risk factors for complications from influenza, those persons will be contacted by the public health system individually."

My position on Swine Flu hasn't changed in the last sixty days. To wit, calm and common sense go a long way.
