Well, I just read an article on SP that says now the Mexican goverment thinks the number of confirmed cases is one-third of what is originally reported - 903 to around 300. Quite a difference.

To a certain degree those posters regarding the media blowing things out of proportion are right. But remember this is a new virus, and nobody seems to have any immunity. I think washing hands often and using common sense regarding coughing, sneezing etc is the best advise. The other important thing to remember is if you are feeling bad (whether or not you go get a test) stay home to avoid possibly spreading the disease. The number of cases of documented virus usually means there are others in the area that have only a mild case and don't seek medical attention. In other words there are usually more people than reported that have or potentially have the virus.
That being said. I work out at home.

No, if you take good precautions everything should be okay. We had two from our school district sent home Thursday, possible cases.

The problem I see is everyone is panicking. And the media is dramatizing it to the hilt. There has been, to my knowledge, only ONE confirmed diagnosis here.
And I'm not a fan of all the anti-bacterial soap as it's been shown to break down our natural immunities, which, I believe, is why we're seeing more strains of regular diseases. We're so afraid of germs, we just don't have the immunities anymore.

LISD was open Friday, but they will be closed all next week. Hand sanitizer is like gold now. From what I was told there is none to be found. I have one at home.
Will take the normal precautions I always do.
Be safe.

No, but will be real careful about sanitizing stuff at work, bringing Lysol Spray in with me. I have asthna, the flu kicks my butt hard. I do get the flu shot, but that is not a guarantee, it does lessen the severity.

I have not heard ALL school districts agreeing on any action being taken, lots of diffent info out there LISD has cancelled a lot of stuff, Fort Worth ISD has closed all schools, the rest is spotty, some track events are continuing as planned. I would check with the specific event organizer.


I am not really surprised about Mayfest, I heard a lot of friends say there were not going, last year it my friend got hailed on there, we went and it was sooooooo crowded, you could not even get food without waiting 45 minutes in a line..later for it!!

Peggy, good for you to take care of yourself!

I'm just not going to worry about it - statistically I run a MUCH better chance of getting pneumonia or some other virus-nasty....

I don't use a gym. I go to a rehab center. Mayfest and Cinco de Mayo has been cancelled in Ft. Worth. Schools are closing left and right. I am on the lung transplant list and my lungs can't take it.

I usually exercise a lot at the gym and out running. However, for the last 2 or 3 days, I have not felt well. No fever. Better today. I feel a bad cold coming on. But, I would definately use precaution at the gym with the wipes, etc. I am also double dosing on my vitamin C to build my immunity. You never know.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

I don't use a gym either, but it won't stop me. I would make sure to wash my hands after using any equipment or use the sanitizer. I would avoid touching my face until I did wash my hands.

My company is going to posting hand washing instructions. You would be amazed how many people don't wash their hands long enough or scrub between their fingers and on top of thier hands.

And it is all UIL activities until May 11, then they will either continue those on the schedule and reschedule those missed, or cancel more. (My husband is a teacher and academic coach, and his team made State finals, and it was cancelled, potentially to be rescheduled May 11).

I work in the medical profession; in Guadalupe Co. where the outbreak first was recognized in Texas. The most important thing right now is that everyone not panic.
Take precautions; wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. Cover you mouth with a tissue when you sneeze and throw it away. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. In our county, they have recommended not conducting meetings or gatherings in an attempt to prevent the spread of the flu.
Also, do not go to work if you feel ill.
If you are ill, call your doctor immediantly and find out where you should go to be treated. If you have the flu, you do not want to go to the office and spread it to everyone else.
I am a member of the Emergency/Disaster First Responder Team for the county. At GRMC, we have an area outside of the hospital for flu testing, and it is open from 6 am to 11 pm.
As of 11 am, there were 16 lab confirmed cases.

I went to the gym today. The flu is only bad if you let it get away from you. If you show symptoms, go to the doctor right away and start the meds. I think the main way to prevent it is to wash your hands constantly--use hand sanitizer when you can't get to soap in wate. We had one death in Houston and one new outbeak in my county but it isn't going to stop me.

Donna

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Yep...it's stopped me for right now. However, my main reason is because I'm going to see my grandkids on the 8th and one has leukemia. I don't want to risk it...or him (them).

I don't go to the gym anyway but I'm not letting the swine flu stop me from getting out and about. We just have to exercise a little more caution...

Not where I am, at least not yet. Our gym has those wall-mounted waterless soap dispensers. I'm following the google map of outbreak locations and the closest is still 150 - 200 miles away.

No, if I was a member of a gym I would still go, just be sure to bring my hand soap with me and follow common sense about wipe downs and such on equipment.
