Post from Milton
Junior Adam Johnson wasn't about to let a case of swine flu at Milton High School bring him down—especially when that case got him two unexpected days off school.
"I think (the flu threat) is over exaggerated," Johnson said as he played basketball at Schilberg Park, defying the school's recommendation to avoid public places.
The Rock County Health Department ordered the school closed Monday and today after finding a student has a probable case of H1N1, commonly known as swine flu, over the weekend. It's the second probable case in Rock County.
Schools must be closed for one to two weeks after an infected student last attends school, said Karen Cain, Rock County health officer. Officials believe the student last attended school Tuesday, April 28, so the school must be closed until at least this Wednesday.
I got nothing to add except to say, Vice President Biden would be proud.
