Saw this article in Los Angeles Times today;
Hundreds of children have been sent home from summer camps across Southern California in recent weeks with flu-like symptoms, and camp counselors and directors are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the H1N1, or swine flu, virus….
UC campuses are stockpiling supplies, from paper masks and hand sanitizer to food and water. Officials are going over worst-case scenarios ….
Ironically some summer camps choose to send the children suffering from mild flu symtoms home thus taking a concentrated infection group and spreading it out.
Swine flu has not had much of a serious impact yet, other than imminent shortages of flu vaccine this fall.Pandemic Preparedness,swine flu,swine flu preparedness
