Swine Flu

The Centers for Disease Control is one branch of the government that works superbly. They are the most authoritative source on this planet for all news of epidemics and new diseases. There is no physician or expert who knows more than they do. All the major news organizations get their information from them, and you should too. The Swine Flu page is where you can find the best and most up-to-date information. It's updated at least once a day. Don't be sold on something from the alarmist salesperson at the alternative-medicine pharmacy. Trust yourself and get the straight story from the CDC. They have no hidden agenda and aren't trying to sell you anything.

This map shows the extent of flu cases in California. The California Department of Public Health also has a website that is very helpful, especially with links to local resources. Contra Costa County's web page has updated information on school closings and other newly-implemented rules. Alameda County has a web page that isn't as well organized, but has a lot of helpful links.
