Swine flu investigation closes 1 school district

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas health officials have some advice today when it comes to a new strain of swine flu -- to reduce your risk.

Texas Department of State Health Services spokesman Doug McBride
says:
-- If you're sick, stay home
-- Cover your coughs and sneezes
-- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

McBride told The Associated Press that Texas remains with just two confirmed cases of swine flu.

Gov. Rick Perry has asked federal health officials to provide 850,000 more courses of antiviral medication for Texas -- as a precaution. Texas already has 840,000 courses of antiviral medication on hand.

The two confirmed cases involve students at a high school in Cibolo (SEE'-boh-loh), near San Antonio. A plan to close the high school this week was expanded to include all 14 schools in the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District.
