City of Lubbock releases local H1N1 "swine flu" update

LUBBOCK, TX (City of Lubbock) - As of 9:30 Friday morning, there are NO confirmed cases of H1N1 flu in Lubbock, Lubbock County, or the 41 counties that make up Region 1 of the Texas Department of State Health Services.

To help keep people better informed, the City of Lubbock has set up two resources to provide information on the H1N1 flu and what preventative steps people can take. 

First, anyone with internet access can check the City of Lubbock's website, www.mylubbock.us and click on the "Swine Flu Information" link on the homepage.  A variety of useful information on the flu can be found under that link, including H1N1 facts and a downloadable poster in both English and Spanish that shows the proper way to wash hands.

Also, the City has established a Citizen Information Line that will play a recorded message giving an update on current test results as well as tips for preventing the H1N1 flu.  The Information Line number is (806) 775-3911.  This line will be updated a couple of times a day with the latest information.

State and local agencies on same page about swine flu
The city partially activated its emergency operations center early Thursday to continue planning for the swine flu just incase it spreads to the South Plains. NewsChannel11's Ann Wyatt Little has details on the plans and what you need to know.
