City of Keller Response to Swine Flu

Hey, I told you a couple of posts ago, Swine Flu 24/7….

The City of Keller is working with state and Tarrant County public health officials as well as Keller ISD to monitor, assess and take precautions in light of recent reported cases of Swine Influenza A (H1N1). The City will work to keep citizens informed of the latest news as it affects our area and City operations, as well as encourage residents and employees to take precautions.

The City of Keller is working to sanitize its public facilities, including all buildings, playgrounds and parks. Commonly touched surfaces will be treated with a bleach or antiseptic solution. Currently, City facilities will be open during normal business hours. Visit www.cityofkeller.com for the latest information on how Swine Flu is affecting City events and operations.

Swine Flu is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by Type A influenza virus that regularly causes outbreaks of influenza in pigs. Humans are not typically infected with Swine Flu, but humans with direct contact to pigs are sporadically infected. In the past, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had received one human Swine Flu infection in the U.S. every one to two years. However, from December 2005 to February 2009, 12 cases of human infection with Swine Flu were reported. The CDC has established human-to-human transmission among the recent cases.
