We hope everyone will keep abreast of the Swine Flu situation and be extra careful to follow good hygiene practices during this important time of the outbreak.
While no cases have been found in West Virginia at this time, officials fully expect there will be at some point.
So just because we may live in a rural, somewhat insulated, area, we are not immune. In fact, it appears that literally no one is immune to this virus.
There isn't need for hysteria, but there is a need for caution and good, sensible practices.
Some great advice is given in the story below this editorial and the Centers for Disease Control gives important, constantly updated information on its Web site, www.cdc.gov/swineflu.
It is everyone's responsibility to do their part to keep this worldwide event from being disastrous.
