Was it Swine Flu?

Central Florida is still waiting to hear this morning if a Mexican Tourist who went to Disney has Swine Flu. The news media and doctors had promised a test result yesterday and unfortunately the results have been delayed. So everyone is on their toes anxiously awaiting the results. Whatever the case, you can read more about it at Central Fla. Awaits Flu Test Results

Possibly related to that case could be a group of students from South Carolina. A group of students who came to Disney here in Central Florida, might have contracted the virus. See article, SC Students Sickened After Disney Trip at

Nevertheless, people are taking steps to protect themselves regardless of official results and diagnosis. Buying more hand sanitizer, sprays, and washing their hands. I know the next step is surgical masks. My next step is that I am going to clean off the desks in my classroom and door handles, especially after any sick student has used them and have hand sanitizer available in the classroom.
