Greenwich Swine Flu Update
From: Gtacey Gross
For immediate release
We have been informed by the Greenwich Department of Health that in the 6th grade at Western Middle School – to date – there have been 19 negative rapid flu tests and 15 rapid flu tests are positive for some type of flu. The flu virus rapid tests cannot determine whether it is the H1N1 virus. The positive rapid tests have been sent to the State Department of Health for further testing. As we will not have the results from the State until mid to late next week, and with guidance from medical experts, the District is seriously considering postponing and/or canceling the Western Middle School 8th grade trip to Washington, D.C. next week. The school is in the process of contacting 8th grade parents now to discuss the situation.
There will be two meetings held at WMS today to discuss this situation. The first will be held at 2:45 pm and the second will be held at 6:00 pm. Thank you.
