Swine flu case confirmed at Kennesaw State

Campus health officials have received confirmation of Kennesaw State University’s first official diagnosis of H1N1 flu. A teacher and a student have been confirmed with the flu. A culture was taken from the student and sent to the Georgia Department of Community Health, which confirmed the diagnosis. Kennesaw State is part of the U.S. Influenza Sentinel Providers Surveillance Network, which helps track influenza activity. As a member of the sentinel providers network, KSU can send three cultures a week to the department of community health for H1N1 testing. The student has recovered and will be back on campus this week.
