Moraga schools change pandemic flu plan

The Moraga school board announced Wednesday that it will change its plan regarding the closing of the schools in the district during flu pandemics.

After the avian flu pandemic in 2006, the Moraga school board put into place a mandate that would shut down all schools in the district if the World Health Organization upgraded alerts to stage six.

The change eliminates the automatic closure of schools when alerts reach stage six. If alerts now reach stage six, the school district would wait for a decision from a county health officer before closing.

The changes are preemptive, as there have been no reported cases of swine flu in Moraga.
