Statement about H1N1 Flu by Voice Editor Tony Ortega (UPDATED)
This morning, we received a report that one of our news interns may be ill with swine flu.
This has not been confirmed, and we are currently trying to get more information about it. However, to be safe we have cautioned our employees and are having a cleaning crew scrub the entire office this evening.
No other employees at the Voice report flu symptoms, and we are continuing our work as normal.
Update 4:45 p.m. Our intern turns out not to have swine flu. He called to apologize and said that another intern may have misinterpreted what he told her about his condition. Please resume normal levels of PANIC.
