H1N1 Flu Information (AKA: Swine Flu)

First, I've learned that we aren't supposed to call this outbreak the "Swine Flu" anymore. It's the H1N1 Virus. Okay, that's out of the way...

Here's the latest... I can report that I met with School District Officials this morning about the closing of Milton High School due to one probable case of the H1N1 flu. "Probable" at this point means that the Rock County Health Department is 95% certain that this student has the virus. Based on information presented at the meeting, the student recently visited a place where the H1N1 outbreak is prevalent. Follow this link to view the handouts that were provided at the meeting:

Remember that you can find the latest and greatest information about the Milton Schools from their website at
