Swine Flu Precautions

Are You Still Taking Swine Flu Precautions?

The media circus surrounding the swine flu had all but died until the H1N1 virus claimed its first victim in Queens, NY. Intermediate School 238's Assistant Principal Mitchell Wiener died of complications related to the virus on Sunday night.

Since the outbreak started weeks ago, some airlines pulled all blankets and pillows from their flights while airports made hand sanitizers readily available for passengers. Schools have been shut down and some stayed closed. I allowed my tots to re-enter the park, but have become more stringent about washing their wee hands after a dash in the dirt. As the illness continues to make waves, I'm still playing it safe and taking necessary precautions to keep my family healthy. Are you?

Sometimes people just die of the flu. 38,000 people died of the regular flu last year. This can't stop me from living my life :-(

Normally I wouldn't be on high alert, but my parent's house is smack dab in the middle of every school closing in Queens. They're supposed to babysit for my 2 year old and 3 week old next week....
