We’re Not Done with Swine Flu Yet – School Closures in Queens New York

Schools are still being closed for a few days with the flu still making the rounds. The big panic seems to be over, but as the article says, there are still some “hot spots” that are alive and well, or should I say sick. BD
The action around the new H1N1 flu strain seemed to have abated this week. But new hot spots are three schools in the New York City borough of Queens. They’re being closed down for five days amid lots of illness among students. An assistant principal is critically ill.
New York City’s health department decided to recommend the closures in Queens “because there are unusually high levels of flu-like illnesses at three public schools,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a news release.
