General Information on H1N1 (Swine) Flu for the Community

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely watching cases of H1N1 or "swine flu" in people in the US. For the latest information on the number and location of cases, visit: the CDC's H1N1 Web site

In its ongoing investigation, the CDC expects to find more cases of the swine flu due to increased testing of influenza viruses.

On June 18, 2009, Public Health received confirmation of the first H1N1 case of a Napa County resident. We anticipate additional cases now that the virus is well established in California.
