Schools, Daycare Center Remain Closed Due to H1N1 Virus

Posted: Updated:

San Diego State's campus daycare center was temporarily closed Monday after 20 children and three staff members reported flu-like symptoms.

The number of confirmed cases of swine flu in San Diego County stood at 15 as of early Monday morning.

Three high schools were also closed today in connection with the H1N1 virus: Kearny High School in Kearny Mesa, the School of Creative and Performing Arts in Paradise Hills and Mission Hills High School in San Marcos.

All of the closures were scheduled to last until May 18th or until testing deems the facilities safe again, according to county public health officials. 

Dr. Wilma Wooten, the public health officer for San Diego County, said the Centers for Disease Control has 800-900 specimens to test, but she hopes to begin getting confirmation for local tests at some point this week.
