Type A influenza on the rise in public schools

LAKE CHARLES, LA(KPLC-TV)

From KPLC Staff:

UPDATE 9-1-09

The Calcasieu Pairsh School Board is reported a a rise in the number of confirmed Type A infulenza. Today, there have been 26 confirmed cases of Type A influenza, which could include H1N1 swine flu.

Officals say Lewis Middle reported 5 confirmed Type A cases today, and 4 yesterday. This is the largest cluster of flu cases being reported in the parish. Officials are closely monitoring that school.

Also, school officials have released added protocols that are posted on its website at www.cpsb.org, plus teachers will be giving students the information to take home.

CPSB wants to remind parents that the confirmed Type A cases are released approximately 130pm each day. So, anything reported after 130pm, it will be posted the next day.

 

UPDATE: The local medical community is telling the Calcasieu Parish School Board they cannot test for H1N1 influenza virus, only Type A Influenza, so confirmation of H1N1 is not possible locally. The new guidelines for the Calcasieu Parish School System will now be reporting Type A Influenza, which MAY include H1N1, but is not specified as H1N1.

Treatment for Type A Influenza is the same for both Type A and H1N1. Calcasieu Parish School Systems will report confirmed Type A Influenza to Hayes via fax. The superintendent will use the School Messenger to alert parents, and follow up as warranted. Principals will not call the parents. Daily numbers of confirmed cases by schools, along with historical data of confirmed cases by schools will be posted at www.cpsb.org
