Flagler College isn’t the only school in the region with a sweeping fear of an H1N1 (swine flu) outbreak.
Seven cases of H1N1 popped up at Stetson University in DeLand since the beginning of the school year.

“Seven specimens have come back H1N1 positive since the beginning of this school year, but the kids who have had it are back in class after 3-5 days,” said Stetson’s Health Services Director Debbie Cassidy. “At the beginning of the school year we expected a surge of the flu, and that is what happened.”
