as part of those efforts. The samples from this patient have been sent to CDC and results of additional testing will be released once they are available.

As with any influenza, citizens are reminded to take the following steps to prevent spreading illness to others:

  • Stay home when you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others;
  • Cough or sneeze into the bend of your elbow or a tissue and properly dispose of used tissues;
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth;
  • Stay healthy by eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water and getting plenty of rest and exercise; and
  • Seek care if you have influenza-like illness.

The Department of Health Web site is being updated daily with the most recent Pennsylvania-specific swine flu information, including links to CDC recommendations and other swine flu information. For more information, visit www.health.state.pa.us.
