I would treat this flu like any other flu. Wash your hands and cover your cough. I would not book a flight to Mexico at this time but that is the recommendation of the government.
I would truly not panic.

Good Morning All,
From what I have been hearing through the news media, each state is receiving huge quanties of anti-viral drugs such as Tamiflu. I know MN has over 400,000 doses of the medication set aside for any outbreak.
Just a bit of FYI:
What is swine flu? It's a form of influenza that commonly affects pigs and, more rarely, humans.
Can I get it from eating pork?No.
What are the symptoms?They're similar to more common strains of influenza: fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people also report coming down with a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
