Yes there is. There's testing 3 cases of flu in Marathon County. I think one in Ozaukee, not sure where the others are.

I'm not to worried about it, just keep doing the same ol same ol. Wash your hands, get enough sleep eat your veggies. Common sense to the people who worry! I think the media is taking this way to far. Swine flu this, swine flu that. Come on let me go one day without hearing anything, please!

If you go to pandemic.wi.gov, it is a state operated web site that has current info and daily updates. The news today was that the virus is missing a component (an enzyme or protein or something, I can't remember) crucial to its ability to replicate. Hopefully this bug will die off quickly.
At my workplace (I'm an RN with the state of WI.), we had a teleconference today; at this point it's just like Josh said: wash those hands, practice healthy habits, eat well, don't get run down. The media is really going overboard on this.
And "HI" to Hntr.

pandemic.wi.gov- go to this state operated site, it is updated daily. "so and so said ...", or " my neighbor says..." are not the way to keep informed; the website provided is accurate and factual, not some rumor. 36,000 people die from the flu every season; no point in getting excited over this one. it's just the FLU people.
