Another Swine Flu Case Confirmed In Jefferson County

by Rick Howlett on May 18, 2009

Kentucky Department for Public Health officials say they have confirmed a case of swine flu in a Jefferson County Public Schools employee.

It’s the fourth confirmed case in the county, the 13th in the state and the first connected a school.

JCPS officials say the patient is a staff member at Meyzeek Middle School who had a mild case of H1N1 and has returned to work.

JCPS sent a letter home with Meyzeek students, saying the school will remain open.

There have been no fatalites from the illness in Kentucky.

Thanks for informing the people who work around in the school system, NOT… Let people know whats going on when it happens not after “they back to work”, how many more people do you want to get sick? Are you waiting for some one to die before you think this thing is real??…

Oh, ya. Sure. Stay open until all the kids get sick. That is a real good idea. A school employee in NYC just died from this and they closed down their schools. We have several cases now in Jeff Co. and this one is actually a school employee. You’d think they’d be responsible enough to take precautions, but they aren’t. Every year I grow more disappointed in JCPS. This is the sort of thing that keeps that disappointment growing.
