Seminole County's Response to Swine Flu
Many questions have come into the Seminole County Office of Emergency Management asking about the Swine Flu, and what citizens can do to protect their families against the strain. It is important to note there are no reported cases in the State of Florida. Seminole County is closely monitoring the situation around the Country and will send out advisories. What can you do to protect your family?
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to monitor the status of the influenza. The Florida Department of Health is proactively responding to the event by enhancing surveillance and monitoring efforts. Since the influenza season is winding down, any influenza occurring now will be carefully assessed to see if it is due to the new strain.
