Along with you guys I was one of the ones warning about this as well. I live in SE MI and this problem has not hit us yet. Curious thing is it seems to be most prevalent on the W side of the State which is somewhat sparsely populated by comparison with down here. I also think that we are already dealing with two strains of the H1N1, one far more virulent then the other. Earlier today on a pinned thread on the Emergency Declaration there was a Med Person talking about their daughter and how it hit her. This leads me to believe that this thing might mutate several times over.

The only thing I am doing right now is keeping my kids indoors as much as possible, they both had the "flu" last week, but the doctor didn't say it was swine flu. All's they said was that they were only calling it swine flu if they had to be hospitalized...

So, how many of those school kids have or came down with Swine Flu?

You do realize the kids are much brighter than the MSM would like you to believe. If they know that if five of them in their school "call in sick with a fever" or jack up their bod temp so its fever like and head to the school nurse - the school will get closed.

Guys, this is not good for those states and might be a foreshadowing of later in the season. Since they are so far North, it's colder there, and they've already gotten some snow. I'm in KY, and it's widespread, the flu, but temps are still close to 60 F during the day. If this flu spreads better in the cold, November and December might be bad.

Crazy....how many in YOUR area? We have about 20 in our vicinity. Hasn't hit us yet though.

None yet either....we finally had the first confirmed case of H1N1 in our COUNTY like 2 weeks ago, so I wouldn't expect any school closings for awhile around my parts.

School closings owing to swine flu could cost between $10 and $47 billion

The U.S. government urges schools to remain open, but there had already been at least 187 school dismissals across the country affecting at least 79,678 students; cost of closing all U.S. schools could reach billions of dollars

Closing schools and day care centers because of swine flu could cost between $10 billion and $47 billion, a report by the Brookings Institution think tank found. The U.S. government is urging schools to close only as a last resort, such as when large numbers of kids or staffers come down with swine flu.

AP reports, though, that in the month since classes began, many schools have closed. As of Monday, there had been at least 187 school dismissals across the country affecting at least 79,678 students, the Education Department said.

A report issued today by Brookings' Center on Social and Economic Dynamics estimated that the cost of closing all schools in the United States for four weeks would be between $10 billion to $47 billion. Brookings called that a conservative estimate.

Keeping kids home from school would require parents to stay home from work too, and some of those parents are health care workers, the report said.

The report also said:

* The cost of mass school closures in selected cities would be $65 million for Washington, D.C., $1.1 billion for New York City, and $1.5 billion for Los Angeles County.
* Mass school closures would cause 12 percent of workers to be absent; absenteeism could be higher in lower-income households with only one worker.
* The value of lost class time is estimated to be $6.1 billion.

at a local rural hospital there is a five hour waiting list to be seen in urgent care.
most serious cases are being sent to larger cities for treatment.
