Texas college has 30 possible flu cases

JACKSONVILLE, Texas (AP) - Officials say a Texas college was taking health precautions after more than 30 students were treated for flulike symptoms in one day.

Lon Morris College communication director Michael James said 31 students were treated at Mother Francis Hospital in Jacksonville on Thursday. James said none of the three confirmed cases was swine flu.

Mother Francis spokesman John Moore told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that all but two were treated and released.

James said some athletes were among those treated and that the athletic training facility was closed briefly so it could be disinfected.

East Texas Medical Center in Jacksonville, about 105 miles east of Dallas, reported it was treating one Lon Morris student for the flu.
