Swine flu confirmed at ENMU

Freedom New Mexico

Two cases of H1N1 flu have been confirmed at Eastern New Mexico University.

ENMU President Steven Gamble said the confirmation came Friday, and the parents of the students — both of whom were from out of town — had taken them home.

“If they can go home and recover there, we think that’s better for everybody,” he said.

The H1N1 or swine flu cases were announced on the home page of the university’s Web site and in a mass e-mail.

“So we’ve done what we could do to make our students and faculty and staff aware,” Gamble said. “But we expect business as usual at the institution.”
