Swine Flu & Smith College

06May09

Quote of the week, from a Smith alum‘s boyfriend: “So if Hamthrax gets bad, it’ll be an aporkalypse?”

From Smith’s page on Swine Flu:

May 2, 2009
A Smith student with mild flu symptoms has been identified as among the close contacts of one of the Amherst College students with probable swine flu. Samples are being sent to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for evaluation. The student has been placed in isolation with her own kitchen and bathroom facilities, and her classroom and residential contacts are being notified.

May 5, 2009
A Smith student with mild flu symptoms who was recently placed in isolation has tested negative for H1N1, also referred to as swine flu. The student has been advised that she may return to her normal activities. The college continues to consult with health officials at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health on the department’s evolving recommendations for testing and treating H1N1.

Basically, some poor Smithie went through all the craziness of being isolated, getting scared, and freaking out everyone around her before finding out… nope, she just has the regular flu.
