Now with four confirmed cases of the N1H1 flu virus in our community, some might think it's time to panic. But there's no reason to if we take the proper precautions.
All of those who have had the illness have been treated and are now well, according to Amy C. Tomlinson, public health services coordinator with the Lake Cumberland District Health Department in Somerset, and, to the best of their knowledge, the illness hasn't spread to our local schools.
Tomlinson says she wants to be very open about the confirmed cases to help ensure that everyone knows the facts.
