Swine flu may have arrived in Seattle

Three probable cases of swine flu in Seattle, according to a hastily thrown together news conference at Public Health – Seattle & King County. The CDC will have to sequence the virus to be sure, but apparently it tested positive for swine flu in the rapid test.

Wash your hands with soap and water. Cover your mouth and nose with the crook of your elbow (not your hand!) when you sneeze. If you’re sick, STAY HOME. If you really feel rotten, SEE A DOCTOR. Wear a mask only when advised; otherwise, you look like this guy.

Need more info? PHS&KC’s site has more info than you’ll ever need.

Don’t panic. Don’t blow this off either. But really, don’t panic.
