H1N1 Influenza Update

Posted Monday - May 4, 2009


Minnesota currently has one confirmed and six probable cases of H1N1 novel influenza.  Two additional probable cases identified over the weekend were later determined to be seasonal flu.  

Although H1N1 influenza now seems to more closely resemble seasonal flu, there is still reason for concern being seasonal flu is one of the leading causes of death each year.  School officials are being asked to observe students and faculty for influenza and have ill people stay home.  There is also a continued emphasis on self-protection measures like hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes.  At this point, there is no health directive against attending public events or gatherings as long as you are not sick.
