Swine Flu Information

I suspect that most of you have now heard something about the swine flu outbreak in Mexico and other areas of the United States. The purpose of this post is to provide you with sources for relevant and accurate information, both local and federal.

The School District of Milton has provided information regarding the Swine Flu to district families. The documents they have prepared are listed below:

In addition, the most credible federal source for information is the Center For Disease Control and Prevention: www.cdc.gov/swineflu/.

The State of Wisconsin has information posted at http://www.pandemic.wi.gov/. This page includes daily status reports.

Another local source for information would be the Rock County Health Department: http://www.co.rock.wi.us/Dept/Health/Health.htm. Their site also includes general information about pandemic flu outbreaks and pandemic readiness.
