Mille Lacs Band reports possible case of swine flu
The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe ordered the closure of its schools in response to a possible case of H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, on the Minnesota reservation.

The tribe canceled classes at the three Nay Ah Shing schools out of caution. No other tribal buildings are affected.

"The casinos are not affected nor are any other businesses on the reservation," a spokesperson told The Brainerd Dispatch.

The schools are expected to reopen on Monday.
