Canon City, Colo. (AP) – Tests confirm that dozens of students sick at Canon City Middle School had swine flu.
About a fifth of the students were out sick Friday. Authorities say at least 104 students in the school system were out sick with flu-like symptoms.
The school announced Tuesday that the sicknesses were the H1N1 Virus, or Swine Flu. They based the conclusion on four random tests.
None of the sick students have been hospitalized. School officials were working with Fremont County Health officials to sanitize commonly touched items such as door knobs and computer keyboards and to remind students about hygiene.
