Swine flu may not be making daily headlines anymore – not since the the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic last week, anyway – but the H1N1 virus has slammed a Santa Rosa summer camp so badly, the camp closed its gates. After 15 staffers fell ill on the eve of opening Camp Newman-Swig, a Jewish summer camp that draws some 1,400 young campers each summer, administrators placed frantic phone calls in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, telling parents to keep their kids home. According to the camp’s posted updates, Newman-Swig will reopen June 25, and everyone seems to be recovering just fine.
Is swine flu impacting you too?
